I've just run the upgrade wizard from an early Q2 2011 to Q3 2011 and got the expected error in respect of skins now being outside the web.ui.dll file.

I am however having trouble finding the skins.dll file to reference  - I've searched all my hard disks to no avail.  It's certainly not in the project /bin folder either.  I then looked for the location that the installer puts *any* of the Q3 2011 telerik files and couldn't find a directory - I presume it just inserts the relevant files as necessary in a project rather than store in /program files or somesuch.

How should I go about getting the skins.dll so that I can put it in my /bin and reference it in my project?

Thanks
Rich.

Please follow below steps. ( in attached files)
It will add skin.dll automatically in your project.

Thanks Jayesh, but my dialog looks different to yours (see attached).  Running through the dialog doesn't result in the project being fixed.

The only options I have in the drop down are "None" and "Default".

Hello Richard,

Please make sure that you have the Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll file included in your bin folder since we moved all of the skins except for the Default skin in the above mentioned assembly file. For more detailed information I would suggest that you refer to this post that explains in details the changes. I would also suggest that you take a look at the following forum post: Separate Skin Assembly in RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX with Q3 2011

Hi Kate,

Thanks for the response.  I can confirm I *don't* have the skins.dll file in /bin (or indeed anywhere else on the PC it seems - not sure where Telerik unpacks its files to - haven't been able to find that either).

If I had a copy of the skins.dll I'd copy it into my solution, but I'm afraid I don't.  It seems that the wizard doesn't believe I'm using any skins and therefore didn't give me the skins.dll at conversion time.

Best,
Rich

With the default installation of the controls the assembly files (dll files) should be located in C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX [your version of the controls]\Bin35

Kate, Jayesh,

Please see attached... no sign of the latest install of RadControls.  I have no idea where the files are going I'm afraid.

I've searched the whole PC and can't seem to find them.

Is there a way to find out where the wizard thinks it is saving the update?

Thanks
Rich

Richard,

From the picture you sent it seems that you have only the Q3 2010 version of the controls installed. So, it is expected that with the old version of the controls you can not find the necessary files. However, it is possible that during the installation precess you changed the location of the files.  You could either try to find them (you could look for Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll file in your computer) or try install the latest version again (so you can check where the needed files are located).   

Best,
Kit Cat

Hi Kit Kat,

Yes - I've tried reinstalling it.  I'm using the latest version.  The wizard has upgraded my project (well it says it has).  My project does refer to the latest dll (see attached).

Am baffled...

Did you looked for the files in this location E:\Dropbox\IMS Portal\ProjectOnline\bin (see the attached image) ?

I guess I should raise a support ticket - it seems a bit of a weird one.

Thanks anyways guys

I am having exactly the same issue.  I updated today using Wizard (from Visual Studio) - and having the same issues described above. 
I am downloading it now from the website to see if that version has everything...

Ok, this worked for me:
1. I downloaded full package for this version directly from the Telerik website (vs using Wizard that I did earlier).
2. Ran the install (this time I got the package demo under Telerik folder) .
3. Opened a "clean" version of the project (the one that has previous set of Telerik controls) that I tried to upgrade earlier.
4. Ran the Wizard again.
Everything seemed to upgrade fine.
