Installing with NuGet

Telerik maintains a NuGet Feed for registered users.

NuGet is a popular .NET package manager. Official releases and service packs of UI for ASP.NET MVC are available for registered users.

The Telerik Private NuGet Feed

To use the Telerik NuGet Feed as a Package Source, use the NuGet CLI. As of now, Visual Studio does not provide a UI for configuring authenticated NuGet feeds.

Setting Up the NuGet Package Source

  1. Download the latest NuGet executable.
  2. Open a command prompt and change the path to where the nuget.exe is downloaded.
  3. Depending on your scenario, execute the following commands respectively.

    • To store encrypted credentials, use the NuGet Sources Add -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" command. As a result, a token is stored in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file. Your original credentials cannot be obtained from this token.

      If you are unable to connect to the feed by using encrypted credentials, try the alternative approach of storing credentials in clear text.

      • To store credentials in clear text, use the NuGet Sources Add -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText command. As a result, the password is stored in clear text in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file. If you are unable to connect to the feed using encrypted credentials, use this alternative approach.

      If you have already stored a token instead of storing the credentials as clear text, update the definition in the %AppData%\NuGet\NuGet.config file by using the NuGet Sources Update -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your password" -StorePasswordInClearText command.

Installing the NuGet Packages

After setting up the source, install the packages either through the Package Manager Console or through the Package Manager Dialog.

After changing my Telerik password, I get [Telerik Nuget] The V2 feed at '...' returned an unexpected status code '401 Logon failed.' error

After changing your Telerik password, you need to reset your credentials in the NuGet.config file. To do this, run the NuGet Sources Update -Name "" -Source "" -UserName "your login email" -Password "your new password" command.
