Upgrading Telerik UI

This document describes how to upgrade the version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core helpers and how to switch from a trial to a developer (commercial) license.

Upgrading to New Versions

To update Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core to a new version, either:

Using NuGet or Bower

To upgrade the version with NuGet or Bower:

  1. In Visual Studio, open the NuGet Package Manager and navigate to the Installed tab. Click Update for the Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core package.
    • If you use Bower instead of NuGet, open the Bower Package Manager and select the Installed tab. Click Update for the kendo-ui package.
  2. In the application, manually replace any references which point to the old Kendo UI resource files such as scripts and styles.

To properly load the Telerik and Kendo UI packages, both NuGet and Bower require authentication.

Upgrading Manually

  1. Download the desired version from the Download section of your account.
  2. Replace all scripts, styles, and images that are related to Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core with the desired version of the framework.
  3. Change the reference to the new Kendo.MVC dll. Verify that the dll refers to the correct ASP.NET Core version.
  4. In the application, manually replace any references which point to the old Kendo UI resource files such as scripts and styles.

Switching to a Developer License

  1. Delete (uninstall) the trial version from your machine. This approach will eliminate the possibility for trial assemblies to end up in the project references or in production.
  2. Install the commercial Kendo UI version and follow the steps for updating the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core version.

If you still see the Trial message after you switch to a developer (commercial) license, check the troubleshooting knowledge base article.
