NuGet Packages

In Visual Studio, you can use DevExpress NuGet packages to add DevExpress libraries to your application. DevExpress publishes these packages on a private NuGet web server, to help add and update DevExpress references in your projects.

Refer to the T466415: DevExpress NuGet Packages article for a complete step-by-step guide on how to set up your Visual Studio instance for DevExpress NuGet packages.

Note the following requirements to use DevExpress NuGet packages:

  • The DevExpress NuGet feed is only available to licensed DevExpress customers.
  • You will need to create a new package source for the DevExpress NuGet feed, as detailed in the Managing packages for the solution section of the MSDN ‘NuGet Package Manager UI’ article.


    Set the feed's source URL in the following format: "https://nuget.devexpress.com/{your feed authorization key}/api"

    The key is available in the Download Manager page of your DevExpress account.

  • Only certain development platforms, such as ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Core, WinForms, WPF, are currently available. See the KB article for a complete list.
  • Design-time assemblies are not included.
  • DevExpress controls referenced with NuGet packages are not available from the Toolbox.
