“Words cannot describe the feelings I have for the new Control Panel. I don't have to recall what version I downloaded last time, and what I have installed. This will save countless hours. Thank you Telerik! Home Run!!!”
Tommy Wells, via the Telerik Support System
The new Telerik Control Panel allows you to quickly install and update all of your Developer Tools from a single application. It was revealed with Telerik’s Q2 DevTools release, and if you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time. The Control Panel will guide you through the update process of the products you already have installed. If you are new to Telerik, the Control Panel will present you with the countless developer tools we offer, and will help you with their initial setup.
The Telerik Control Panel is a nice innovation in the developer market, and a real time-saver - there is no need to visit our site and download the tools that you need one by one. Just open the Control Panel from the Windows Start menu and it will give you all the information you are after.
You can download and install the Telerik Control Panel right away (3.8MB, free installation). Run it, log in, click on Install all products, and go grab a coffee. The integrated all-in-one installer will download and install the developer tools you have selected while you enjoy your drink.

Here is what the Control Panel will do for you:
- Check the Telerik developer tools you have installed on your machine;
- Update previous versions of all Telerik DevTools to their latest versions;
- Install all of your purchased products at once;
- Install all trials you have not installed at once;
- Install all free developer tools that Telerik offers;
- Update trial versions to purchased versions;
- Auto-update itself;
- Give you a feedback form to contact us.

For the next version of the Telerik Panel we will add desktop alerts when updates are available for all Telerik developer tools. Also in the next version we plan to add support for maintaining multiple DevTools versions - this is needed when you need to use more than one RadControls’ versions in different projects.
Here is a little contest for you. Share your ideas and suggestions of how we can improve the Control Panel experience, and we will send Telerik t-shirts to the top 10 ideas! Winners will be announced and contacted on July 20th.
