Launching the Theme Builder

ASPxThemeBuilder can easily be launched in different ways.

  • From the DEVEXPRESS menu

    In the main menu of Visual Studio, select Extensions | DevExpress | ASP.NET Controls v20.2 | Run ASP.NET Theme Builder…


  • From the ASPxThemeBuilder.exe file

    Run the ASPxThemeBuilder.exe file. Typically, this tool is located in the following path after installation.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 20.2\Components\Tools\\ASPxThemeBuilder.exe

When launched, the tool displays the following window and a start-up dialog.


In the dialog, you can create a new theme or open an existing one for further modification.


When using ASPxThemeBuilder, ensure that the Microsoft.mshtml.dll primary interop assembly is installed on end-user computers. To deploy this assembly, use the vs_piaredist.exe package installed with Visual Studio. The package can be found in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Merge Modules folder by default.
