Redistribution and Deployment

  • 5 minutes to read

Certain DevExpress libraries are considered redistributable under the End User License Agreement (EULA) and can be distributed to end-users of your applications. You must have a valid license to legally distribute applications that use DevExpress components.

When you deploy a web project that uses DevExpress web controls, you should copy the corresponding assembly files that implement the functionality onto a target machine (server). Note that you cannot use our installation for this purpose since it includes Design libraries that cannot be distributed according to the terms of our EULA. This means you need to deploy the necessary assembly files onto the target server manually.

See ASP.NET Deployment Content Map to learn more about web project deployment techniques.

Below is a list of all DevExpress web control suites and their corresponding assembly files. Some of these assemblies are required, while others that provide additional functionality are optional, depending on your requirements.

NOTE

All the required DevExpress assemblies are located in the following folder after installation: “C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 20.2\Components\Bin\Framework\“

The 20.2 in assembly and folder names corresponds to the product version’s year and volume number. You can find more information about our product delivery and versioning model on the Product Delivery Model web page.
