This document describes assemblies required by web projects which use the functionality of the ASPxVerticalGrid. Some assemblies are essential, while others (that provide additional functionality) can be optionally deployed, depending on your requirements


If you use other DevExpress components in your project, using and deploying them should comply with corresponding EULA documents. For more details on licensing information and the redistribution policy of DevExpress, refer to Redistribution and Deployment.

Depending on the permissions you have on a production server and the number of web applications that use the same DevExpress assemblies, you can either register those assemblies in the global system assembly cache (GAC) or place them into the Bin folder of your application on the target computer. To learn more about web project deployment techniques, see ASP.NET Deployment Content Map.

Required Libraries

Below are the essential libraries required by applications that use the ASPxVerticalGrid. These libraries are considered to be redistributable under the .NET Controls & Frameworks EULA, and can thus be redistributed legally.

Assembly Description
DevExpress.Data.v20.2.dll Implements the most basic functionality common to all DevExpress controls. This includes classes for data binding, skinning, printing, exporting, as well as many other auxiliary types and resources.
DevExpress.Web.v20.2.dll Contains classes that implement the core functionality of all DevExpress web controls and the functionality of controls from the following components: Data Editors, GridView, Card View, Vertical Grid, Data and Image Navigation, Docking and Popups, Site Navigation and Layout, File Management and Multi-Use Site Controls.

Optional Libraries

The following libraries provide additional functionality for web projects that use the functionality of the ASPxVerticalGrid. Some of them are considered to be redistributable under the .NET Controls & Frameworks EULA, and can thus be redistributed legally, while others require separate licenses.


Redistributable Libraries

The following libraries are considered redistributable under the .NET Controls & Frameworks EULA.


  • DevExpress.Data.v20.2.dll
  • DevExpress.SharePoint.2013.v20.2.dll
  • DevExpress.Web.ASPxThemes.v20.2.dll
  • DevExpress.Web.v20.2.dll
  • DevExpress.XtraPrinting.v20.2.dll



By default, all required DevExpress assemblies are located in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 20.2\Components\Bin\Framework\“ folder of your development machine after installation.

Non-Redistributable Libraries

Distributing any DevExpress design-time libraries ending with “.Design” is strictly prohibited. It means that you cannot use our installation for deployment purposes, since it includes design libraries that cannot be distributed according to the terms of our EULA.


Please consult the EULA for additional up-to-the-minute information on which libraries, tools and executables are considered redistributable.
