Updating Telerik
One of the programs we develop is internal, and this makes it a good testing ground for the Telerik updates to make sure there aren't any bugs that will negatively impact customers using the other software we sell. When using the Telerik Control Panel to update to a newer version of Telerik, older versions are forced to be uninstalled. This requires us to go back and reinstall the older versions immediately afterwards until we're ready to update our other software to the latest version of Telerik. It would be very helpful if we could install newer versions without the requirement of uninstalling the older versions.

Thank you!

Actually, on your picture is shown minor upgrade of the product and the "KEEP PREVIOUS PARALLEL VERSIONS" option will not work in this case as it preserves only previous Major versions. You can read more about the difference between the Major and Minor releases at

Hi Darren,

Actually, this feature is implemented in the Control Panel. In order to keep the old versions untouched, you need to open Contol Panel options and check the 'KEEP PREVIOUS PARALLEL VERSIONS' check box (see attached picture).
