This document describes the assemblies required by web projects that use the functionality of the DevExpress Rich Text Editor for ASP.NET. Some of the assemblies are essential, while others, which provide additional functionality, can optionally be 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 details on licensing and the redistribution policy of DevExpress, refer to Redistribution and Deployment.
Depending on the permissions you have set on a production server and the amount of web applications that use assemblies provided by DevExpress, you can either register the assemblies in the Global 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 the Web Deployment Content Map for Visual Studio and ASP.NET article.
Below is a list of essential libraries required by applications that use the ASPxRichEdit. These libraries are considered to be redistributable under the .NET Controls & Frameworks EULA, and thus can be redistributed legally.
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.
Contains classes that implement the basic functionality for DevExpress printing libraries.
Contains base classes common for Office File API and Office controls.
Contains classes that implement the logic for formatting rich text, as well as basic types that provide a public API common to such DevExpress RTF controls as ASP.NET RichEdit, WinForms RichEdit, and WPF RichEdit.
This assembly is also required when using a Rich Edit in-place editor (RepositoryItemRichTextEdit) and/or exporting to DOCX.
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.
The following libraries provide additional functionality for web projects that use the functionality of the DevExpress Rich Text Editor for ASP.NET. All of them are considered redistributable under the DevExpress EULA, and thus can be redistributed legally.
If any provided DevExpress Theme is used, the following assembly should also be deployed.
If you localize the ASPxRichEdit control using the satellite resource assemblies, you need to deploy the corresponding assemblies. To learn more, see the Localizing ASP.NET Controls via Satellite Resource Assemblies topic.
The following list summarizes the libraries considered redistributable under the DevExpress EULA.
This also includes the following resource assemblies for German (de), Spanish (es), Japan (ja) and Russian (ru) languages.
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.
Distributing any DevExpress design-time libraries ending in “.Design” is strictly prohibited. This means that you cannot use the DevExpress installation for deployment purposes, since it includes design libraries that cannot be distributed according to the terms of the EULA.
Please consult the EULA for additional up-to-the-minute information on which libraries, tools and executables are considered redistributable.
