Hi,

We are currently using Visual Studio 2005 for our ASP.NET web site. We bought telerik .NET 2.0 dlls and used them in the web site.

Now, we want to upgrade to Visual Studio 2012. If we buy telerik .NET 4.5 dlls, would it work or do we have to do some manual code changes? 

Also, Is there is a converter or tool that can help us with?

Thanks.

Hi Erwin,

I see two problems here. The first one is the .NET compatibility between .NET 2.0 and 4.5. It is likely that there are going to be some breaking changes that are not related to our controls. Fortunately VisualStudio integrated upgrade tool will give you a log of any breaking changes that were introduced.

When it comes to our controls, there might be some minor issues, mainly because you are using a version that is at least one year older than the current. However, I believe that you won't face any critical issues upon upgrading.

All the best,
