    Within approximately 1½ month our subscription to the RadControls for WinForms will end, and therefore we are currently in the process of deciding of what to do next. We are considering the following options:

    A) Upgrade our current subscription to an RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX + WinForms + Telerik Reporting subscription.


    B) Wait for the RadControls WPF release (Upgrade our existing application to WPF).

    However a couple of questions comes to mind when listing the two options.

    1) If we choose to upgrade as described in option A what kind of RadControls for WPF license is included? Is it an anual subscription or is just the first release we will gain access to?

    2) If we wait for the official release of RadControls for WPF will it be possible to upgrade to it from our current subscription, or will we have to do an entirely new purchase?

    Hi Rasmus,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Regarding your questions I'd like to say:

    1.) If you choose to upgrade to our bundle (RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX + WinForms + Reporting) until October 1st, 2008 you will receive our RadControls for WPF and RadControls for Silverlight at no additional cost. All products included in the bundle are offered with Developer license + Subscription.This means that you will be entitled to receive all version updates (major and minor) for the included products for a period of 1 year. As part of this license you will be also entitled to a Gold Support Package which guarantees response within 24 hours.

    2.) To answer your second question, currently it is not decided yet if an option for an upgrade from RadControls for WinForms to RadControls for WPF will be offered. Most probably you will need to buy a new license for the WPF controls in case you prefer to wait until the official release of WPF controls.

    My advice for you would be to choose the option A and upgrade your WinForms license to our bundle. This way you will not only continue receiving latest versions of the RadControls for WinForms, but also you will receive our RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, Reporting, Silverlight and WPF.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
