Upgrading to a newer version of RadEditor for MOSS

Here is how to upgrade your RadEditor for MOSS from a previous version to the latest one. In the instructions below we will upgrade from v5.2.2.0 tov5.3.1.0.

In SharePoint 2007 deployments use the following steps to upgrade an existing version of RadEditor for MOSS to a newer version of RadEditor for MOSS:

  1. Uninstall the old version of RadEditor for MOSS as described in section Uninstalling RadEditor.

  2. Install the new version of Telerik RadEditor for MOSS as described in section Installing RadEditor in a MOSS 2007 farm.

  3. Paste the following <dependentAssembly> element in the <assemblyBinding> tag in the web.config file:

    XML

    <runtime>
        ...
        <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
          <dependentAssembly>
            <assemblyIdentity name="RadEditorSharePoint" publicKeyToken="1f131a624888eeed" culture="neutral" />
            <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-<old version>" newVersion="<new version>" />
          </dependentAssembly>
        ...
        </assemblyBinding>
        ...
    </runtime>
    

    The <old version=""> here represents the old product version (5.2.2.0), while <new version=""> should be replaced with the current version (5.3.1.0 in this example):

    XML

    <dependentAssembly>
       <assemblyIdentity name="RadEditorSharePoint" publicKeyToken="1f131a624888eeed" culture="neutral" />
       <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-5.2.2.0" newVersion="5.3.1.0" />
    </dependentAssembly> 
    
  4. (Web Parts) To enable the RadEditor Web Parts, which were created with the previous version, open the web.config file of your SharePoint site and add the following line right above the </SafeControls> tag:

    XML

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=<old version>, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" 
        Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*" Safe="True" /> 
    

    In this case <old version> is 5.2.2.0, so the <SafeControl> tag should look like this:

    XML

    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=5.2.2.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" 
        Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />
