Deployment - MVC Extensions

This document describes assemblies required by web projects that use the functionality of the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions. Some of the assemblies are essential, while others that provide additional functionality can be optionally deployed, depending on your requirements.

Note

If you use any DevExpress components in your project, using and deploying them should comply with corresponding EULA documents. For more details on licensing information and the redistribution policy of DevExpress, refer to Redistribution and Deployment.

Depending upon the permissions you have on a production server and the amount of web applications that use the same assemblies provided by DevExpress, you can either register the assemblies in the global system assembly cache (GAC) or place them into the Bin folder of your application on the target computer. To learn more about web project deployment techniques, see ASP.NET Deployment Content Map in MSDN.

Note

Refer to the Web Server section of the System Requirements (ASP.NET MVC) topic to learn about web server requirements.

 

Note that the 17.2 number encountered in the assembly and folder names in this topic identifies a product version's year and volume number. You can find more information about our product delivery and versioning model at the Product Delivery Model web page.

Expanded Required Libraries

Below are the essential libraries required by applications that use the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions.

Assembly Description
DevExpress.Web.Mvc.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement the common functionality of DevExpress Extensions for ASP.NET MVC. See DevExpress.Web.Mvc and Extension Sheet to learn more.
DevExpress.Web.Mvc5.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement the common functionality of DevExpress Extensions for ASP.NET MVC. Used within ASP.NET MVC 5 project templates only. See DevExpress.Web.Mvc and Extension Sheet to learn more.
DevExpress.Data.v17.2.dll Implements the most basic functionality common to all DevExpress controls. This includes classes for data binding, skinning, printing, exporting, as well as many other auxiliary types and resources.
DevExpress.Utils.v17.2.dll Contains basic utility classes and common skins (such as "DevExpress Style", "Visual Studio 2013", "Office 2013" and "Seven Classic").
DevExpress.Web.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement the core functionality of all DevExpress web controls and the functionality of controls from the following components: Data Editors, GridView, Card View, Vertical Grid, Image and Data Browsing, Docking and Popups, Site Navigation and Layout, File Management and Multi-Use Site Controls.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxHtmlEditor.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement a functionality of the ASPxHtmlEditor control. See HTML Editor and DevExpress.Web.ASPxHtmlEditor to learn more.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement a functionality related to the ASPxTree List control. See Tree List and DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList to learn more.
DevExpress.Printing.v17.2.Core.dll Contains classes that implement the basic functionality for DevExpress printing libraries.
DevExpress.RichEdit.v17.2.Core.dll Contains classes that implement the logic for formatting rich text, as well as basic types that provide a public API common to such DevExpress RTF controls as ASP.NET RichEdit, WinForms RichEdit, and WPF RichEdit.
This assembly is also required when using a Rich Edit in-place editor (RepositoryItemRichTextEdit), Filter Editor Control (FilterEditorControl) and/or exporting to DOCX.
DevExpress.Office.v17.2.Core.dll Contains base common entities used by RichEdit, Spreadsheet, Snap and Document Server Suites.
DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v17.2.Core.dll Contains basic classes that implement the main functionality of DevExpress Spreadsheet.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxSpreadsheet.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement a functionality related to the ASPxSpreadsheet control. See Spreadsheet and DevExpress.Web.ASPxSpreadsheet to learn more.
DevExpress.SpellChecker.v17.2.Core.dll Contains an assortment of internal classes that implement the basic spell-checker functionality of WinForms SpellChecker, ASP.NET SpellChecker, and WPF SpellChecker controls.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxSpellChecker.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement the ASPxSpellChecker component's functionality. See Spell Checker and DevExpress.Web.ASPxSpellChecker to learn more.
DevExpress.Charts.v17.2.Core All DevExpress Charting controls contain classes shared via the same charting engine. These classes, along with a codebase, are intended for internal use, but also provide the basic functionality for ASP.NET Charts, WinForms Charts, and WPF Charts.

This assembly is also required when deploying an application containing the WPF Spreadsheet control with a chart.
DevExpress.XtraCharts.v17.2 Contains basic classes that implement the main functionality of the XtraCharts Suite.
DevExpress.XtraCharts.v17.2.Web Contains the WebChartControl control that is intended for use in ASP.NET applications.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid.v17.2 Contains classes that implement the ASPxPivotGrid control's functionality. See Pivot Grid and DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid to learn more.
DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid.v17.2.Web Contains classes that implement the PivotGridControl functionality.
DevExpress.PivotGrid.v17.2.Core Contains internal classes that implement the basic functionality for WinForms PivotGrid, ASP.NET PivotGrid and WPF PivotGrid controls.
DevExpress.XtraReports.v17.2 Contains classes that implement the main functionality of XtraReports.
DevExpress.XtraReports.v17.2.Web Contains classes which are used to implement the Web functionality of XtraReports.
DevExpress.XtraScheduler.v17.2.Core Contains main classes that implement the basic functionality of WinForms Scheduler, ASP.NET Scheduler, and WPF Scheduler controls.
DevExpress.Web.ASPxScheduler.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement a functionality of the main controls available in the ASPxScheduler component. See Included Components to learn more.
Note

When using the ASP.NET MVC 5 framework, you should use and deploy the DevExpress.Web.Mvc5.v17.2 assembly instead of the DevExpress.Web.Mvc.v17.2 assembly.

Expanded Optional Libraries

The following libraries provide additional functionality for web projects that use the functionality of the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions.

 

  • DevExpress Themes

    If any provided DevExpress Theme is used, the following assembly should also be deployed.

    Assembly Description
    DevExpress.Web.ASPxThemes.v17.2.dll Contains classes that implement a set of predefined DevExpress themes for DevExpress web controls. See ASPxThemes Assembly to learn more.
  •  

  • Exporting

    Some DevExpress extensions (such as GridView) provide you with an ability to export their content. If you use the export functionality, you need to deploy some additional assemblies.

    • GridView Export

      If the GridView's export functionality is used (via the GridViewExtension's Write... methods), you need to additionally deploy the following assemblies.

      Assembly Description
      Assemblies required by the Printing-Exporting library. See the XtraPrinting - Deployment topic for a detail list.
  • Localization

    If you localize DevExpress MVC extensions using the satellite resource assemblies, you need to deploy the corresponding assemblies. To learn more, see the Localizing ASP.NET Controls via Satellite Resource Assemblies topic.

Expanded Redistributable Libraries

For a complete list of libraries that are considered redistributable, please refer to your owned product's EULA.

Note

By default, all DevExpress assemblies that may be required are located in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 17.2\Components\Bin\Framework\" folder of your development machine after installation.

Expanded Non-Redistributable Libraries

Distributing any DevExpress design-time libraries ending with ".Design" is strictly prohibited. It means that you cannot use our installation for a deployment purpose since it includes design libraries that cannot be distributed according to the terms of our EULA.

 

Please consult the EULA for additional up-to-the-minute information on which libraries, tools and executables are considered redistributable.
