How to deploy telerik's controls?


How to deploy telerik's controls?

  • Greetings.

    I managed to develop a Chart with wincontrols.radchart (my first attemp to incopprate .net control in my program.)

    now I can't view char on -client networking- client (client-server)  11.6

    I read this

    but it won't telll where should I put the dll´s at runtime.  

    Posted this question on telerik's site, but haven't got any workable answer yet (after some 3-4 days)

  • Do you have any error message?
    Are you using the -assemblies startup parameter? That should point to a folder that contains your assemblies.xml file and the custom assemblies you are using. Use that parameter, and put the required assemblies (.dll files) into that folder.

  • Thanks Mike....

    This is my assemblies.xml

    This is my assem  dir:

    this is my access icon (windows client networking license:)

    with "Statup in" (windows porperty of direct access icon): 


    This is the propath in sch.ini


    And this is the error   :(

    One thing I noticed is on client networking version 11.6.0.  It asks for version 2016.2.608.40 and I got this on class browser of PDSOE

    Assembly Telerik.WinControls.ChartView


    The difference between 2015.2.728.40 developer, and 2016.2.608.40 on runtine.... Is it worth for something?

    I simply can't make the cahrt happen....

  • The error message is telling you that the AVM was trying to load Telerik.WinControls.ChartView version 2016.2.608.40, but could not find it. If your deployed assemblies.xml contains the reference to version 2015.2.278.40, then there is some reference somewhere to version 2016.2.608.40.

    When the AVM loads the CLR, it load the assembly references from assembly.xml. As it executes r-code, it can find r-code that was compiled with a different version of the assembly (the assembly version is written into the r-code). The AVM will try to load that assembly.

    However, if your dev (or build) environment really only contains version 2015.2.278.40, then the r-code would not contain newer references to 2016.2.608.40. You might really want to verify that the version of the assembly you build the r-code with is indeed the older version. You could try to open the r-code in a text editor/viewer, and search through for strings containing ChartView. I would not usually recommend this, but I don't think there is a way to check the .NET references of r-code, and such strings are fairly obvious.

    I don't know the inheritance or dependencies with Telerik controls, but maybe it is the RadChart that is requiring the newer version of ChartView. I would have expected the error message to say it could not load RadChart, if it had a failed dependency on ChartView.

    I think the correct solution is to bring your Telerik assemblies to the same level. You seem to have a mismatch of versions in your dev environment.

  • Openedge is shipped with a trial version of Telerik controls -- I think that was the 2015 version you mentioning

    You have to do three things :

    1. Chance the prowin.exe.config file - see also post

    2. You have to update the assembly references in your project

    3. Replace the toolbox controls to the 2016 version

    Compile everything and that should work then to start deploying by using the -assemblies startup parameter and the assemblies.xml

  • I've unistalled the 2016 version of telerik (I guess sometime back I installed demo), hoping that the compiled version of CLS windows gets hardcoded the 2015.2.728.40 version that should remain.

    The problem is I came to PDSOE, and I dont' have the Telrik panel in the toolbox anymore, just the ultra, openedge and microsoft controls panels....

    How can I reinstall the demo that came with PDSOE?   I need to show CEO what we are about to start doing...


  • Other question would be, perhaps I can upgrade all demos of telerik (pdsoe and client networking), just to show proof of concept...?  what's your thougts?

    Will the instalation procedure register the demo on pdsoe? will I be able to drop the controls on visual designer?


  • I would go with the latest version of Telerik

    Do you have a valid license ? Or a test license ?

    Just follow the steps I mentioned earlier ...

    1. Change the prowin.exe.config file as mentioned in the post

    2. Open PDSOE

    3. Open your project and replace the referenced assemblies in your project

    4. In your project you have a toolbox.xml , open it and replace the Numbers of Telerik version 2015 to 2016.3.608.xx

    If you use 64 bit replace the xx with 40

    Good luck !
