Deployment of Site Navigation and Layout Controls

  • 2 minutes to read

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


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

Depending on the permissions you have set on the production server, and the number of web applications that use the assemblies provided by DevExpress, you can either register the assemblies in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC), or place them in the Bin folder of your application on the target computer. To learn more about web project deployment techniques, see the ASP.NET Deployment Content Map article.

Use our Assembly Deployment Tool to collect the required redistributable DevExpress and custom assemblies automatically to deploy your application. Otherwise, you can deploy the required assemblies manually.
