    Hi there,

    We are in the process of planning for the upgrading all our telerik tools (including telerik asp.net for Ajax) from our current versions which are about 3 years old to the latest versions and would like some advice on the best way of doing so.

    We currently use Telerik asp.net for AJAX, Telerik winforms and Telerik reporting tools for our inhouse system and are thinking of starting the upgrade with reporting tools first followed by asp.net for Ajax and winforms.

    We will be trying to do this sequentially and concurrently, also take the opportunity to upgrade visual studios from 2008 sp1 to 2012.

    As we are thinking of upgrading the telerik asp.net controls after reporting tools, we would like to know whether the best way is upgrade incrementally by versions ( time consuming since our current version is v2009.2.701.35) or just download the latest telerik version.

    Please advise?

    First I would upgrade your solution to .NET 4.5 / VS2012.  Once that was 100% working, I would upgrade the Telerik controls.  I would just update directly to the latest version.  There are going to be quite a few breaking changes from 3 years ago, so be prepared.

    Good luck! :)
