Sitecore 6.6: Unable to find an embedded skin with the name ‘Telerik’

SitecoreI’ve been going through the process of getting a project setup on my machine that has recently been upgraded from Sitecore 6.5 to Sitecore 6.6.  Mostly things have been uneventful, but then I tried to load the Content Editor.

I encountered the following error caused by the Telerik controls:

Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTipManager with ID=’ToolTipManager’ was unable to find an embedded skin with the name ‘Telerik’. Please, make sure that the skin name is spelled correctly and that you have added a reference to the Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll assembly in your project. If you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.

A new DLL (Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll) has been introduced to provide the Skins for Telerik controls, and this is a must-have for your development on Sitecore 6.6.  Just make sure you have that DLL where you previously had Telerik.Web.UI and you should be golden!
