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 v20.1 | 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 20.1\Components\Tools\Asp.net\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.
