Installing UI for Silverlight from ZIP File

The following topic describes what steps you should perform in order to install Telerik UI for Silverlight manually from a ZIP file. The ZIP is used for manual (advanced) installs and upgrading/updating purposes.

For more information about which installation package you need to install, read here.

For more information about the system requirements, read here.

With the Q1 2014 release we no longer provide the full ZIP package. Instead you could download the Hotfix ZIP and if needed download the Themes separately. In the following sections we will go through the download process for Q1 2014 release as well as the previous versions.

From Q1 2014 afterwards

Downloading ZIP Package

  • Go to to the UI for Silverlight download page following the instructions in Download Product Files topic.

  • Download the ZIP file and extract it in the desired location.

Exploring the Extracted Folders

Once the archived folders are extracted you will probably note the following folder structure:

  • Binaries - the standard binaries including theme dlls.

  • Binaries.NoXaml - binaries without XAML.

  • LicenseAgreements

  • Themes.Implicit - implicit styles friendly XAML.

With the Q1 2014 release we no longer provide the Themes and pdb files within the installation package. You could download them separately from the UI for Silverlight download page in your Telerik account.

The Silverlight Demos application can be downloaded from the UI for Silverlight download page (in the Telerik account) as a separate ZIP file as well.
