Hello,

I currently have a working .netcore 2.2 web project that has telerik 2019.1.115 installed. This project has .netframework 4.7.2 references.

In the process of migrating .netcore from 2.2 to 3.1, we have encountered retro-compatibility issues. From the moment we upgraded our .netcore version, we started getting errors on loading libraries in the startup class on endpoint configuration :

 

"Unable to load one or more of the requested types.\r\nCould not load file or assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=4.0.0.0'. The system cannot find the file specified.\r\nCould not load file or assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=4.0.0.0'.

 

After alot of investigation, we pinpointed that the combination of .netcore 3.1 and telerik together was causing this problem. After migration to 3.1, if we remove the telerik libraries and references, the endpoints get configured properly and we are able to access the website. When adding back the telerik package, the endpoints immediately fail to configure.

Any help would be appreciated

David

Hello David,

You have mentioned that the project in question uses the 2019.1.115 version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core. Have you tested to upgrade that version to R1 2020.1.114? That is the version that officially provides support for .Net Core 3.1. If you have, and the result is the same, I would like to ask you to send us a small isolated sample replicating the problem. To prepare that you could remove all views, controllers, external and database dependencies from your project and leave a single view with a single controller with very simple content.

Hello Veselin,

Thank you for your reply. I was indeed trying to create a sample project for you to reproduce this issue just yesterday only to find out that this problem only occurs on our .netframework472 library and not in a new one. I tried playing with references with it but unfortunately I don't have enough time on my hands right now so I am postponing the migration to 3.1 to a later date for now.

When we do pick this up once more I will try to remember to post our problem & solution here.

Thanks again

David

Hello,

So I am back on the .netcore 3.1 migration and I'm having the same issues as I used to have. I will work on a sample project to submit but for now here is what I've done :

  1. Created a new sample .net core 3.1 web app project
  2. Imported my legacy library as a dependency
  3. Hit play
  4. Site runs fine

 

  1. Created a new sample Telerik .netcore 3.1 v2020.3.1021 web app project
  2. Imported my legacy library as a dependency
  3. Hit play
  4. Site crashes on startup

 

Screenshots in attachment.

Does Telerik pre-load or pre-validate imported libraries?

The library in question is pretty big and has some legacy (notably .DBML data context (System.data.linq)) references but those are not used in the .netcore website.

We do not have this problem with .netcore 2.2 and Telerik 2019.1.220

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you very much!

Here is the stacktrace returned by the error above.

I don't see any Kendo references in the mix but when I remove the Telerik libraries from the project, the error does not occur.

I couldn't replicate the issue in a sample project just yet.

Hello David,

Thank you for the additional information provided.

I am afraid we are not aware of an issue as described. That is why I will need to be able to reproduce and troubleshoot locally the problem in question. Therefore, I will be waiting for the sample that would allow me to isolate the cause for the error in question.

Hello Veselin,

This morning I was able to reproduce the issue I'm having. Unfortunately simply reproducing it didn't help me solve the problem I'm having.

I tried to attach a sample project but it is too large. I have instead attached only the two classes contained inside the test library.

What I have done to reproduce : 

  1. Create a new Telerik Web App in .netcore 3.1 v2020.3.1021
  2. Create a new .net framework 4.7.2 library
  3. Add System.dada.linq, System.configuration and a copy of Kendo.mvc.dll as dependencies to the Library.
  4. Add a project dependency on the web app to the library
  5. Create Class1 in Library using only legacy technologies
  6. Create Class2 in Library referencing Kendo for Data queries
  7. Start the application, crash on startup.

Thank you for helping me out on this!

David

Hello David,

Thank you for the sample provided and for the detailed explanation of the case.

As far as I can understand, you are using the Kendo.Mvc.dll distributed with the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core 3.1 application to be referenced and used in a .Net Framework 4.7.2 class library. If that is the case, I am afraid the attempted would not work because the .Net Core 3.1 app and respectively the Kendo.Mvc.dll for a .Net Core 3.1 app implement .NET Standard 2.1. .Net Framework 4.7.2, however, implements .NET Standard 2.0, which is also implemented in .Net Core 2.x. The reason for not facing issues in the previous application (Core 2.2) is the fact that both .Net Framework 4.7.2 and .Net Core app 2.2 implement the same .NET Standard. Further information on the .NET Stanard implementation support could be found here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/net-standard#net-implementation-support

As per the scenario in question, you should choose one of the following options:

- Keep the Web app as .Net Core 2.2 app and keep the Class library as it is;

- Migrate the Web app to .Net Core 3.1 app (as you did) and migrate the Class library to either .NET Standard Class library (2.1+) or to .Net Core Class library (3.1). Note that is such a case there will be some changes in the Class library implementation. For example, the ChangeAction enum is no longer present in .Net Core.
