Redistributable Assemblies

When you deploy an ASP.NET Core project that uses DevExpress Bootstrap 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 Hosting and deployment overview for ASP.NET Core apps in MSDN to learn more about web project deployment techniques.

Below is a list of all assembly files DevExpress Bootstrap controls use. Some assemblies are required, while others that provide additional functionality are optional.

All the required DevExpress assemblies are in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 18.2\Components\Bin\Framework\" folder after installation.


The 18.2 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.
