Automated Wizard Installer
This article explains what the automated install wizard does for Telerik UI for Blazor components, and how to get it.
While the most common way to install the Telerik UI for Blazor components is to use the Telerik private NuGet feed, you can also use a wizard installer, or a zip archive.
There is an automated installer for:

The automated installer provides the following:

.nupkgfiles so you can setup a local feed in Visual Studio. You can find them in the
packagesfolder under the installation folder.
- An offline version of our demos that you can run and inspect in your IDE. You can find them in the

How to Download the Automated Installer
To download the automated
msi (for Windows) or
pkg (for Mac) installer:
Go to Downloads in your Telerik account.
On the loaded page choose from your purchased products or trial downloads Progress® Telerik® UI for Blazor, and click on it.
Download the Automatic installation file for your operating system
Once the download completes, run the downloaded file and follow the instructions.
The default installation path on Windows is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik UI for Blazor <VERSION>\. If you are not administrator of your machine, you might want to choose installation path to which you have full access (for example, the Documents or Desktop folder). Thus, you will be able to successfully run and explore the offline version of our live demos that comes with the installer.
Set Up a Local NuGet Feed in Visual Studio
To setup a local NuGet package source, so you can install the Telerik components without an active Internet connection and without setting up our private feed, do the following:
Copy all the
.nupkgfiles we provide from the
dplfolders of your Telerik UI for Blazor installation to your preferred local feed location. By default, the installation path is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik UI for Blazor <VERSION>or where you unzip the ZIP installer.
Open Visual Studio and go to Tools > Options.
Find the NuGet Package Manager node, expand it, and select Package Sources.
Click the Add (
+) icon at the top to add the new local feed, select its name and point it to the path where you placed all the Telerik
Make sure to add the packages from both the
dplfolders to your custom feed. You can also point the package source to the Telerik installation folder to include all packages recursively.
Once you have the NuGet feed set up, follow the instructions to create either a Client-side Blazor app, or a Server-side Blazor app.
Can't Install on MacOS Catalina
MacOS requires that installer packages are signed. The UI for Blazor installation
.pkg package is signed and the MacOS system should not block the installation. Nevertheless, in rare cases MacOS may still block the Telerik Installer.
There are several approaches you can try:
Make sure that the "identified developers" downloads are enabled:
- Open System Preferences
- Go to Security & Privacy and select the General tab
- In the bottom half of the window under Allow apps downloaded from: option select the App Store and identified developers
- Apply the option and then give the installer another try
Install the file manually with either of these approaches:
Right-click on the
.pkgand select "Open". This should bring up an install dialog, but with an option to Open the file anyway.
Right-click on the
.pkgand select "Open With", and choose Installer.
Or, get around Apple's security precautions by removing the quarantine Extended Attribute on the
.pkgfile by executing
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/file
You can, alternatively, obtain all the files you need from the ZIP archive we provide which does not require an installation.
