    I built a new dev machine and copied all my projects over to it.  Then I reinstalled Telerik with the newest Q1 2009 release ( I was one version behind ).  I immediately noticed some of my skins weren't working and tried re-adding the Telerik.Web.UI reference thinking that would help but it didn't.  I tried both dll's in the bin and bin35 folder.  Then I found the information about the skinning changes. 

    My question is which reference should I be using: the one in the bin folder or the one in bin35?  90% of all my projects are on .net 3.5 but I want to make sure.

    Hello drpcken,

    Indeed there are breaking changes in the embedded RadControls skins in order to unify their css class names (an important step before the first release of the ASP.NET Visual Style Builder tool we plan to announce for Q2 2009) and improve/polish their look and feel. These modification are outlined in the relevant article from the documentation:


    Therefore, if you would like to use the old skin with the new versions of the controls, I suggest you use the skin converter we prepared for this purpose. How to use this tool you can see from the following blog post on our site.

    You can use the assembly from the /bin35 folder of the installation for projects built on top of ASP.NET 3.5 and the assembly from the /bin folder for ASP.NET 2.x or ASP.NET 3.x projects.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
