Downloading and installing the DevExpress .NET Products

To install DevExpress .NET products on your development machine, it is first necessary to obtain the DevExpress .NET Products Installer.
You can download it from the website in one of the following ways, based on the status of your current account.

If you have not yet purchased DevExpress .NET products, but would like to try them, you are free to download the trial version.

If you already have a license for DevExpress .NET products, you can download the registered version from the Client Center.

The DevExpress .NET Products Installer installs .NET assemblies, which contain the DevExpress visual controls and components, and integrates them into your Visual Studio IDE. In addition, this tool installs demo applications that illustrate the functionality provided by DevExpress .NET products.
