Note

1Starting with version 18.2, DevExpress source code targets C# 6.0. You can still use our pre-compiled assemblies in Visual Studio 2012 and 2013. However, it is not possible to recompile DevExpress source code in these Visual Studio versions.

Visual Studio Express editions may not support all design-time features of DevExpress WinForms controls.

If you require a previous version of a DevExpress product, log in to the Download Manager page on the DevExpress website.
