I downloaded the installer twice and both times I get an error (during installation) that the installer does not have the correct file size. Also the installer does not seem to be signed. I am downloading 18.2.7 latest release for VS2019. Is something wrong with the file?

What version of visualstudio do you use to make the development of winforms controllers such as "DevExpress.Data.v18.2.dll"

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Ps: there are errors concerning the list section u003D, etc ...

1) What about the older version 18.1.x with .NET Framework 4.0 support ?

I would not like to keep two versions of Visual Studio. At the same time, many older projects require .NET 4.0. In particular, this applies to old XAF-projects that work even under Windows XP

2) Do you plan to support Jetbrains Rider? The development environment is ready for use by IMHO. Not enough XAF model editor out there. An external editor is not a very convenient solution.

1. We may release v18.1.11 with Visual Studio 2019 support in several weeks. At least we already did required adjustments for XAF there.

2. Thank you for your suggestion. We are aware that IDE gains popularity among certain developers, but have not planned its support in XAF for any specific release. I will follow up with you in the Support Center on the external editor use.

@Birger Our support engineers assume something may be interfering with the download, such as a proxy server, or anti-virus software. We receive such reports from time to time. If you are still experiencing the issue, please contact our support team and they will be able to assist you further.

I haven't upgraded my subscription for a while now (no longer developing commercially). Does this announcement mean my 17.2.13 DXperience license will no longer work with the latest Visual Studio 2019 ?

Since we utilize C# 6.0 features, our developers use Visual Studio versions 2015 - 2019.

We consider version 17.2 as too old to adapt it to VS 2019. If you need to develop with previous DevExpress builds, please choose an appropriate Visual Studio version. I understand that this is not the answer you'd like to hear, but we cannot approve v17.2 for the new Visual Studio, nor do we provide any workarounds for this scenario.

You may wish to take a look at our upcoming version, 19.1, which is also packed with a wide range of new features (

I've got several times in VS 2019 the message: Visual Studio stopped responding for x seconds. Disabling the extension DevExpress Visual Studio menu Integration 18.2.0 might help.

Are you aware of this issue?

Working with VS 2019 version 16.0.0 (16.0.1 is available) and DevExpress 18.2.7

Is there an ETA for VS 2019 support for the UWP controls?

@L.J.C. van Heuven:

It appears that you encountered the issue that we've been told about a couple of times. After deep debugging, we seem to have determined the culprit in our Menu Integration extension. We'll do our best to develop a complete resolution as soon as possible. Your patience is highly appreciated.

Please refer to the bug report to learn about our progress in this area.

UWP Controls v18.2.7 fully support Visual Studio 2019. I've updated the blog post - thanks for pointing out they weren't on the list.
