    I am beginning to dread new updates to Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC. It takes hours and hours to upgrade.

    For the last 2 upgrades I have had to unbind my ASP.NET MVC project from source control (TFS) before even attempting to run the upgrade wizard. If I am lucky it takes hours, if I am unlucky it takes hours and then runs out of memory.

    Now I am trying to upgrade from v2017.3.913 to v2017.3.1018, I've unbound the project from source control, ran the upgrade wizard, eventually ran out of memory. I don't need all the culture files that the upgrade is trying to add to my project, which I presume is why the upgrade takes so long (and often fails).

    I can't keep spending so much time trying to upgrade to the latest versions. So does anyone have any thoughts on how to speed this up?

    You could consider 2 different options for upgrading to a new version of Progress Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC - automatic and manual:
    With the automatic upgrade it took less than a minute on my side to upgrade a sample project that uses the CDN for scripts and styles.
    You could find it for a reference in the attachment. https://www.screencast.com/t/AvKVQtQr
    I could suggest you also to look at the recommendations in the following forum thread:

    Progress Telerik
    Try our brand new, jQuery-free Angular components built from ground-up which deliver the business app essential building blocks - a grid component, data visualization (charts) and form elements.
