  • After you run the installer, it displays the welcome page that gives you the option to install the DevExpress .NET products in Trial or Registered mode. You can register your products later if you choose Trial Installation.

    In this tutorial, the Registered Installation is used. Click this option to proceed to the next page.

  • On the next page, provide the email address and password that you used when registering on the DevExpress website. Click the orange arrow button at the top-left of the installer to navigate back to the previous page.

    Enter your credentials and click the Log In button. After your information is securely verified using the Internet, it proceeds to the next installation page.


    Your development machine should have an active Internet connection to verify your credentials. Otherwise, the following error message appears:


    Click the Offline Registration link and follow the instructions on the next page to obtain a valid registration code, or install DevExpress .NET products in Trial mode.


    You can use the /FORCEMANUAL command-line option to explicitly activate manual/offline registration mode.

  • On the next page you can choose the products you wish to install.

    Check or uncheck the Install All Products option to choose whether to install all products or only registered products. Click Next to proceed to the next page. You can install the other products and use them in Trial mode if you do not have a license for them.

  • On this page, you can choose the path to install DevExpress .NET products. Click Accept & Install if you accept the end-user license agreement to start the installation process.

  • A progress bar displays during the installation to show the installation's progress. Click the Stop button if you wish to interrupt or cancel the installation process. Otherwise, wait until the installer performs all necessary actions and notifies you that the installation process has completed.

Save the installation log and send it to our Support Team for immediate investigation if you have any issues during the installation.
