Hi Jon The Nerd,
I am glad that your issue is resolved.
You are correct. You should either have Telerik.WinControl.UI.Design.dll in your Global Assembly Cache, or explicitly add a reference to this file in your project.
If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
All the best,
the Telerik team
