The nuget update for Syncfusion ASP MVC libs, does a few things wrong.

  1. Its adding new libs but not removing the old versions of the lib, so there are many duplicate entries, the syntax and format is wrong
  2. Its adds WPF controls as dependencies for MVC libs.

Hi Megatron,

Please find responses for your queries below:

Q) Its adding new libs but not removing the old versions of the lib, so there are many duplicate entries,
A) We were able to reproduce the issue only when the package is updated by choosing ignore dependencies option. Please refer to the below screenshots.
From Package Manager Console:

From NuGet Package Manager:
While updating the required package alone without dependencies, the dependencies won’t get updated to the latest version. So, the corresponding previous version entries will not remove after update. At the same time the particular package will update to the latest version and its version entry will change in web.config file. So, there will be two types of version entries in web.config file.

·         An updated assembly with the latest version.
·         Dependent assembly (which is not updated) with older version.

So, update the NuGet packages without ignoring dependencies.
Q) The syntax and format is wrong
A) Could you please elaborate this issue to proceed further on this?

Q) Its adds WPF controls as dependencies for MVC libs.

We are internally converting the WPF controls into image and rendering these images to exported document.  So, the below assemblies are used in Syncfusion.AspNet.Mvc.ReportViewer NuGet Package to export the visualization controls from ReportViewer API service






The below mentioned assemblies are used in Syncfusion.AspNet.Mvc.FileFormats NGet Package to convert the chart presents in the Word/Excel/PPT file to PDF file in DocIO, XlsIO and Presntation.
