    Currently our company website uses the old 2006 version of Telerik controls. We are soon gonna upgrade to the newer version and I was wondering if both versions of telerik(the old-version we currently have and the new one) are able to be installed and still work with one another.  I am afraid that certain controls will break on our website when upgrading to the newer version.  Please let me know.  Thank You.

    Hello Aret,

    If by "old 2006 version" you are referring to RadControls for ASP.NET Classic (i.e. RadGrid.dll, RadCalendar.dll), you might not experience any issues from them coexisting with RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, depending on your setup.

    Using controls from both suites on the same page, however, will almost certainly cause issues.

    Having that in mind, it would be best if you migrated the "old" controls to their RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX counterparts. Our documentation contains extensive migration articles for each control (example).

    Let me know if that helps.

    EDIT: I corrected my initial statement after checking with another colleague.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
