This document describes assemblies required by web projects that use the functionality of the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions. Some of the assemblies are essential, while others that provide additional functionality can be optionally deployed, depending on your requirements.
If you use any 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 upon the permissions you have on a production server and the amount of web applications that use the same assemblies provided by DevExpress, you can either register the 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 in MSDN.
Note that the 19.2 number encountered in the assembly and folder names in this topic identifies a product version's year and volume number. You can find more information about our product delivery and versioning model at the Product Delivery Model web page.
Below are the essential libraries required by applications that use the DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Extensions.
Contains classes that implement the common functionality of DevExpress Extensions for ASP.NET MVC. Used within ASP.NET MVC 5 project templates only. See DevExpress.Web.Mvc and Extension Sheet to learn more.
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 basic utility classes and common skins (such as "DevExpress Style", "Visual Studio 2013", "Office 2013" and "Seven Classic").
All DevExpress Charting controls contain classes shared via the same charting engine. These classes, along with a codebase, are intended for internal use, but also provide the basic functionality for ASP.NET Charts, WinForms Charts, and WPF Charts.
This assembly is also required when deploying an application containing the WPF Spreadsheet control with a chart.
Contains basic classes that implement the main functionality of the XtraCharts Suite.
Contains the WebChartControl control that is intended for use in ASP.NET applications.
For a complete list of libraries that are considered redistributable, refer to your owned product's EULA.
By default, all DevExpress assemblies that may be required are located in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 19.2\Components\Bin\Framework\" folder of your development machine after installation.
Distributing any DevExpress design-time libraries ending with ".Design" is strictly prohibited. It means that you cannot use our installation for a deployment purpose 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.
