Toolbox for Visual Studio 2013 -

Hi there,

I'm working for years with Syncfusion toolkit, until now I was using VS2008, framework 3.5.  I'm considering to migrate to VS2013, and for some reasons; using framework 4.0. I was able to import my solution, compile/build it so at that point everything is fine.  But I'm not able to see the Syncfusion components from VS2013 toolbox, I've tried to reset it from Utilities-Toolbox Installer but the tool VS2013 option is grayed, I have 2 possibilities: Framework 3.5/VS 2008 (still installed on the PC) and Framework 4.5/VS2012 for both only "Windows Forms" enabled.


  • VS2012 was installed, and uninstalled (lot of performance problem, it was using 100% Disk resources, seen from task manager) before the installation of VS2013
  • PC is running Win 8..1
  • Components are available from VS2008

Any idea to fix that??

Kind regards,


ps: I'm using the forum instead direct track, it was not really clear for me to choose a category to create the ticket
