embed assemblies Telerik
.NET provides a standard mechanism to resolve any needed assembly via the AssemblyResolve event (
Besides self-implementing this event there are tools (like SmartAssembly) which use this mechanism.
We use this mechanism to make application deployment (including ASP.NET applications) as painless and easy as possible.

With Telerik ASP.NET this does not work :-(

Please provide some way/sample/API to make it possible to embed Telerik ASP.NET assemblies.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Rumen,

thank you for your comment.

I know about those options BUT this does NOT help me.

The goal is to ease deployment as much as possible.

.NET provides official ways to embed .NET assemblies - this works fine with all 3rd-party DLLs we use EXCEPT for Telerik.

What I am asking is basically:

Please provide some way/mechanism so that the .NET standard embedding technique works with Telerik ASP.NET assemblies too.


Best Regards

Hi Yahia,

The Telerik.Web.UI.dll is a standard .NET assembly and as such, you can reference it from other folders and location:

  • via the reference functionality of Visual Studio which modifies the solution sln file of the application.
  • via the GAC - see Using the Global Assembly Cache.

Those are the standard methods that the majority of the customers and ASP.NET developers work with.
