We have an extremely old version of the ASP.NET AJAX Telerik controls used for an internal application (2008.3.1314.20).  Since the controls are heavliy used in this application upgrading is going to be a major task.  Is it possible to do a transiitional upgrade and run different versions concurrently?

I'm hoping to do a partial upgrade (i.e., upgrade some controls like dropboxes first), but is this even a possible solution?

I didn't want open a support ticket because we're still looking at this at a very high level.

Thanks,
Felix

Hello Felix,

RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are embedded in one Telerik.Web.UI.dll assembly and that is why it is not possible to do a transitional update.

If you upgrade the Telerik.Web.UI.dll in the production site, this will affect all Telerik controls in it.
That is why my recommendation is to make a test upgrade on your development machine and if there is no problems to backup your public site and after that upgrade it. You can find detailed upgrade instructions in the following article: Upgrading RadControls Trial to RadControls Developer license or newer version.
