Redistributable Assemblies (ASP.NET and MVC Deployment)

When you deploy a web project that uses DevExpress web controls, you should copy the corresponding assembly files that implement the functionality onto a target machine (server). Note that you cannot use our installation for this purpose since it includes Design libraries that cannot be distributed according to the terms of our EULA. This means you need to deploy the necessary assembly files onto the target server manually.

See ASP.NET Deployment Content Map in MSDN to learn more about web project deployment techniques.

Below is a list of all DevExpress web control suites and their corresponding assembly files. Some of these assemblies are required, while others that provide additional functionality are optional, depending on your requirements.

All the required DevExpress assemblies are located in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 17.1\Components\Bin\Framework\" folder after installation.

Note

The 17.1 in assembly and folder names corresponds to the product version's year and volume number. You can find more information about our product delivery and versioning model on the Product Delivery Model web page.

Expanded Non-Redistributable Libraries

Distributing any DevExpress design-time libraries ending with ".Design" (for example, DevExpress.XtraGrid.v17.1.Design.dll, DevExpress.XtraEditors.v17.1.Design.dll and DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v17.1.Design) is strictly prohibited.

Please consult our EULA for additional up-to-date information on redistributable libraries, tools, and executables.
