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 redistribution policy of DevExpress 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.


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


Distributing any DevExpress design-time assemblies ending with ".Design.dll" (for instance, DevExpress.XtraGrid.v17.1.Design.dll, DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v17.1.Design.dll, etc.) is strictly prohibited according to the terms of the DevExpress EULA. This means that you cannot use the DevExpress .NET Products Installer to deploy assemblies onto an end-user machine; instead you should manually deploy necessary assembly files onto the target machine.

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 17.1\Components\Bin\Framework\"

Thus, it is required to add a reference to the DevExpress.Xpf.Themes.Office2016White.v16.1 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 DevExpress WPF Themes.
