Referencing DevExpress UWP Assemblies To Build Applications Using Cloud Services

Adding DevExpress UWP controls from the toolbox automatically references the corresponding DevExpress Software Development Kit (SDK).

To build an application that uses DevExpress UWP controls on a build server that doesn't have the required SDK installed, you need to manually reference the required assemblies instead. To do this, open the Reference Manager dialog (for instance, using the PROJECT | Add Reference menu item), click the Browse button, navigate to the "Components\Bin\UWP\" folder within the installation folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 18.2\", by default) and select the assemblies. Then copy the corresponding *.pri files and folders with resources (*.xaml files) from the installation folder to your project keeping the folder structure.
