Redistribution and Deployment

Certain DevExpress libraries are considered redistributable under the End User License Agreement (EULA) and can be distributed to end-users of your applications. You must have a valid license to legally distribute applications that use DevExpress components.

This topic covers the DevExpress redistribution policy and contains a list of redistributable assemblies.

Expanded Redistributable Assemblies

When you deploy a WPF project that uses DevExpress WPF controls, you should also copy the corresponding assembly files onto an end-user machine. This document provides the complete list of DevExpress WPF assemblies, which can be redistributed according to the terms of the DevExpress EULA.

Note

In most cases, you may only use some assemblies in your project. Use the Assembly Deployment Tool to analyze your project and obtain the list of assemblies that should be deployed in your particular case.

Important

Distributing any DevExpress design-time assemblies ending with ".Design.dll" (for instance, DevExpress.XtraGrid.v18.2.Design.dll, DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v18.2.Design.dll, etc.) is strictly prohibited according to the terms of the DevExpress EULA.

Below is a full list of redistributable DevExpress WPF assemblies. By default, these assemblies are located in the following folder of your development machine after installation.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 18.2\Components\Bin\Framework\"

<sup>1. The Office2016White theme is used by DevExpress WPF controls by default. Thus, it is required to add a reference to the DevExpress.Xpf.Themes.Office2016White.v18.2 assembly in your project if it uses the default theme. If your WPF application uses other themes, you need to deploy the appropriate libraries.

For a list of available libraries and themes they contain, see List of DevExpress WPF Themes.</sup>

<sup>2. These are libraries that need to be distributed in addition to the listed above, if you are using the reporting feature of the WPF Scheduler control.</sup>
