Hi,

using Visual Studio 2022 (latest version) is it a normal process for the upgrade project wizard, to close visual studio and try to re-open it in admin mode? When does the upgrade happen? Before it closes VS or after when trying to reopen the project? 

The issue is that, in a professional / corporate setup, I may not have admin right on my machine. My user account may be link to a user only privileges and probably tied to some Windows account license agreement use for Windows office tools (Office365, Visual Studio....). 

If I have an admin account for my machine, most likely it'll be a different account (username/password), and most likely it will not be tied to any Windows tools type licensing.

The issue here is by forcing the use of admin access for VS, we are not able to start / validate the license of Visual Studio and it results on being stuck on the validation page of Visual studio. At this point, there is nothing to do than closing VS and the project isn't updated.

The previous Telerik WPF Wizard in Visual Studio 2019 were, in my experience, a lot better than the current extensions in VS 2022. I had a lot more control over the packages used in my project and the upgrade process was seamless. 

How to upgrade a project in VS2022 without using Admin mode? What would be a manual way to do it?

 

Thank you for your help

Hi,

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

I was able to reproduce the issue and I have logged a bug in our backlog that should be included in one of our next releases.

To answer your question, the Upgrade is happening before the Visual Studio is restarted so you can open Visual Studio normally after the failed attempt and the project should be upgraded successfully.

If you want to manually do that until we fix the issue, here is an article that should help you - https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/upgrade/installation-upgrading-from-trial-to-developer-license-wpf#upgrade-to-newer-version-or-other-license-of-ui-for-wpf

As a token of gratitude for reporting this to us I have updated your Telerik points.

Please do not hesitate to get back to us if any other questions arise.

Thank you for your quick response.

" the Upgrade is happening before the Visual Studio is restarted"

It's what I thought at first glance as I can see briefly the migration report being open then VS closes.

However in the latest release, when restarting the project, it doesn't seem to be updated. It keeps prompting for an update.

Hi Romain,

After further investigation it seems that the issue is deeper than we thought, and a couple of problems are present in our extension. With that said you can try the upgrade, but this time select the "Leave the Visual Studio Toolbox intact" option. After that the behavior should be as before (Visual Studio will try to start up in admin mode) but the project should be updated. 

In case you want to upgrade your project manually until we fix those issues here is an article for that.

Again, I have updated you Telerik points for helping us improve our product.
