DevExpress NuGet Packages - Now Available

Good news, we are now offering NuGet packages for several subscriptions.

NuGet is the package manager for the Microsoft development platform including .NET.

Licensed customers can request access to the Beta version by writing to


Add DevExpress NuGet Feed

Follow this excellent step-by-step guide to setup your Visual Studio instance for our NuGet packages:

DevExpress NuGet Packages: T466415


The DevExpress NuGet feed requires the following:

  1. You must be a licensed customer
  2. Only certain development platforms like ASP.NET are currently available
  3. You should realize that this NuGet support is still only available as a 'beta', we are still working on the full implementation
  4. You should be using version 16.2, since that version is all we support
  5. Please read the section about "Limitations" before you switch to using NuGet packages


The biggest limitation for NuGet packages is that by design they cannot affect the Visual Studio IDE. In other words, they are most convenient for development scenarios such as build servers.

What this means in practice is that we will not be providing DevExpress design-time assemblies via NuGet, and hence the DevExpress controls will not be available in the Visual Studio Toolbox if you use these new packages. You will still have to install the product via our installation program for those design-time experiences.


Please visit the knowledgebase article to see the complete list of available packages.

Great idea! I hope that in the future all packages can be made available so that we can build our (XAF) apps with MS Team Services!

This is great news! Are there any plans to release WPF and WinForms packages?

For this initial beta, it's only ASP.NET. Once we are sure that everything is working as expected (e.g., the correct packages are provided based on a customer's subscriptions, the references are correct, available versions are calculated correctly, etc.), we will make the service public. Later, we will evaluate the requests and needs for other platforms. Thanks.

According to the note above:

Update: With the v16.2.5 minor release, we've added our Dashboard packages to our NuGet feed.

But I'm missing the Dashboard in my NuGet feed in Visual Studio, does something need to be done on your end so I can get the Dashboard packages?

Thank you!

can you publish the nuspec files and stuff to create the packages?

I'm running nexus locally and are in the process of finding out how to put the devexpress packages in our local installation.

But we are using WPF and Winform, no at the moment..

But is it possible download specific minor version?

Now I see 16.2.8 and 17.1.4, but I would like to download 16.2.6
