Hey Everyone,

I have just updated my WinForms controls to 2022 R1 from 2019 R3.  When i open Visual Studio 2022 and create a new project it all creates succesful however the toolbox seens to still be referencing the old 2019 R3 files.  Also some of the new features such as StepProgressBar are not available.  The particular tool is something that i am very keen to start using and i was wondering if someone can assist me with getting the toolbox updated please.

I have tried the doing a repair of the install as well as the Launch Toolbox Configurator from within Visual Studio however both to no joys.  On the Toolbox Configurator it states that it will close clsoe Visual Studio however this closing isnt happening.

Its also worth noting that the demo applications are showing the correct new latest version and in my installation directory there is only one version.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanksin advanced

Luke

Hello, Luke,

I am really sorry to hear that you are experiencing any difficulties with the upgrade process of the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. 

Telerik UI for WinForms controls are automatically added to Visual Studio's Toolbox during the installation process when using .NET 2.0 (up to 4.8) Framework in your project. This means that the Toolbox population relies on the Telerik WinForms version available in the Global Assembly Cache. It is not clear how exactly you made the upgrade. However, I would recommend you to uninstall any previous versions if such exist and just then install the latest R1 2022 SP1 version. 

In case any old assemblies remain in the GAC, feel free to remove them. A sample approach is demonstrated here:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/knowledge-base/examine-the-gac 

You can also reset the toolbox by right clicking and selecting the reset option:

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
