I have looked at the infragistics website and I know the current tool only works on versions 11.2 and later ... Is there any way to get an older upgrade tool that can update to a version of infragistics less than the newest .. and then use the latest upgrade tool to move to the latest vesion?
You may upgrade to 21.1 now after you've installed it and use its version utility. Nothing should be preventing you from making this happen. The only recommendation to first to your application is upgrade it to .NET 4 or later.
If you have run into issues upgrading please provide a screenshot or error details explaining the behavior and I would be more than happy to investigate this for you.
Let me know if you have any questions.
This would be great ... but the website says something else ... see this link
Also I was looking for the either the gui or the command line tool (Infragistics.VersionUtility.CommandLine.exe ) and I did not find them (I only installed the winforms tools .. do I need to install something else)?
You may ignore that disclaimer for now.
Our docs are trying to warn you that if you are upgrading anything to 10.3 or earlier use those version utilities.
If the version utility that ships with 21.1 is giving you issues then and you only have a few projects to upgrade then you can simply add references in Solution Explorer manually and navigate to the link below and add the matching assemblies you had and delete the 10.3:C:\Program Files (x86)\Infragistics\2021.1\Windows Forms\CLR4.0\Bin
To install the version utility:
Click the download trial button under Infragistics Ultimate
Then run the installer and look for Version Utility, it will be at the bottom of the list of options to install separately.
You can located it here:C:\Program Files (x86)\Infragistics\2021.1\Version Utility
ok ... thanks ... I have installed the version utility and ran it ... and it ... I tried running on just the winforms project and the entire solution ... both resulted in the same error

Make sure that Visual Studio is closed when using the Version Utility.
I've been testing out our 21.1 Version Utility and have had no issues migrating from one version to another. The version utility even lets you change the .NET framework version, which is important, because if you want to go backwards and install 10.3 you have to choose CLR 2.0 under "Upgrade Options"I attached a CLR 2.0 sample with an UltraChart on the form. I'd like for you to extract the sample, and run the 21.1 version utility C:\Program Files (x86)\Infragistics\2021.1\Version UtilityThen I'd like you to choose Solution > Upgrade to Latest button
Let me know your results.
