Telerik batch installer script for Q2 2011

powershell-telerikReady to update your dev system to Q2 2011 bits from Telerik? Not ready to manually run 12 different MSI installers? No problem. I've updated the simple PowerShell batch installer script that will perform the following actions for you:

  1. Locate and uninstall any previous Telerik product installs
  2. Locate and install any Telerik MSI installers downloaded to your system
    • By default, the script looks for installers in this path:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Downloads\Q2 2011

That's about it. Plain. Simple. Saves you time, and in about 20 minutes or so (for a system with everything) Telerik installed, you'll have all of the Q1 2011 bits uninstalled, and all of the Q2 2011 bits installed. You can learn more about the original script and how to execute it with PowerShell in the original blog post from late 2010.

What about a "unified" installer from Telerik that can do this (and more) for you? It's in the works, so stay tuned. In the mean time, enjoy the Q2 2011 bits and updated batch installer!
