    Global Assembly Cache:

    This seems to come up in the context of version differences.  Sitefinity is built against a specific version of various assemblies; for example, RadControls (Telerik.Web.UI.dll).  If you fetch the latest version of RadControls and toss it into the ~/bin folder then Sitefinity complains because it wasn't built against this version of the RadControls assembly.

    Are you getting an error?  What is the error or the context of this question?   :)

     I am having this problem after updating to the RADcontrols trial.  The upgrade took me from Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2010.1.309.35 to version=2010.1.415.20.  I am getting the following error:

    Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2010.1.309.35, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

    Do I need to upgrade some things in the web.config or downgrade the .dll?  If I need to downgrade can you direct me to the correct download area?

    Hi Scott Stark,

    1. To upgrade the controls you need to create a bindingRedirection in your web.config and setting the probingPath element as well. You could keep the both versions of Telerik.Web.UI.dll

    2. We do not recommend upgrading the controls due to internal dependencies between our assemblies and Telerik.Web.UI.dll version. This is why we release regular SP after each Q of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX

    All the best,
