New to Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core? Download free 30-day trial

Upgrade

You can upgrade the version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core helpers and also switch from a trial to a developer license.

Upgrading to New Versions

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

  • Upgrade with NuGet and Bower, or
  • Manually replace the references and files.

Using NuGet and Bower

To upgrade the version with NuGet and Bower:

  1. In Visual Studio, open the NuGet Package Manager on the Installed tab and click Update for the Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core package.
  2. In Visual Studio, open the Bower Package Manager on the Installed tab and click Update for the kendo-ui package.
  3. 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 and 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 licensed Kendo UI version and follow the steps for updating the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core version.

Troubleshooting

I switched from a Trial to a Commercial license, but I still see the Trial message

There are several common reasons for the observed behavior:

  • The build is not updated.

    Try clearing the build folders and then building the project/solution once again. If the application has been compiled with the trial version and not recompiled with the commercial version the trial message might still be displayed.

  • A reference to the trial package has remained in the .csproj file.

    Inspect the .csproj file of the application and make sure that it doesn't contain a reference to the trial version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core package:

<ItemGroup>
    <PackageReference Include="Telerik.UI.for.AspNet.Core.Trial" Version="2021.3.914" />
</ItemGroup>
  • A reference to the Trial package has been pushed to source control.

    In case you have configured any build/release pipelines while testing the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Trial package, it is possible that a reference to the component library has been pushed to source control and is being used for rebuilding the project.
