Hello all,
I'm trying to use the ESRI shape files with RadMap but I always get this error: The DBF file is invalid or has unsupported format.

I tried to use both QGis and MapWindow to create the shape files but with no luck.

There is something that I miss?

Here there is a silverlight test project that can reproduce the issue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c5sn7lozau3v12q/SilverlightApplication2.zip

The telerik version that I'm using is the Q3 2013 (Silverlight5_2013_3_1016)

Thank you,

Hello Alberto,

We are able to reproduce the issue on our side. I've logged this item in our feedback portal. The fix should be available in the 2014 Q1 release. You can track the state of the item here.

Unfortunately, there is no a workaround for the dbf-files in your project, but the shape-file should be read correctly after you add at least one more shape.
