Download and Installation Overview

This article lists the different approaches for installing Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET Core.


Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core requires .NET Core. To install .NET core, follow the instructions on Microsoft's .NET Core documentation site.

Download and Installation

To download and install Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core, you can use either of the following approaches:

  • Automated installer:
    • Windows (.msi). The Windows MSI installer package comes with a standard setup wizard. The setup wizard installs the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core server-side packages and the client-side resources. The MSI allows you to chose whether to install the offline version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Demos and the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Visual Studio extensions. There is also an option that configures the Telerik NuGet feed for you.
    • MacOS (.pkg)
    • Linux (.sh + .tar.gz). Pass -s when running the script. Other arguments are -d for the location where the archive will be extracted (defaults to ${HOME}/telerik-aspnetcore") and -SkipNETCoreInstall to skip the installation of .NET Core (note that the framework is required).
  • NuGet allows you to install only the packages that you need for your project. The Telerik Nuget feed is available only to registered users because it requires authentication.
  • NPM offers another way to install the needed packages for your project.
  • Bower was a popular package manager but starting with ASP.NET Core v2.1 it is no longer supported.
