Install and GAC the Essential Studio for WPF - Windows 10 - Visual Studio 2019 Community


I was using Essential Studio for WPF in Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2015. Recently I installed a fresh Windows 10, Visual Studio 2019 Community, and Essential Studio for WPF there completely with GAC and Toolbox options checked.
Now I can't build my project since the references to Syncfusion WPF controls are not recognized.
I need to mention that I have installed the Assembly Manager and Toolbox Installer from the SyncfusionEssentialWPF.exe, but they have only the .Net 4.0 enabled to check, and other .Net versions such as the 4.6.1 which have been used in my project are disabled!

Do I need to install a newer version of the Essential Studio for WPF?

Hi Mahdi, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.  
We recommend you to upgrade the Essential Studio version to the latest version to get Visual Studio 2019 support. As per our records, you have downloaded our Essential Studio WPF trial setup v17.2.0.46. Please install and try with the v17.2.0.46 and let us know if you need any further assistance on this.  
Syncfusion introduced the licensing system from v16.2.0.41 only for Syncfusion NuGet packages and evaluation setup. You have to generate the license key (not unlock key) and register it when the launch of your application as specified in the below help documents. 
Also, please refer to this blog post for understanding the licensing changes introduced in Essential Studio.

Hi Vadivel, 

Thanks for your reply.
The problem with installing v17.2.0.46 is that requesting license and unlock keys need Linkedin or Xing account. But our license is held in the account of my colleague who doesn't have any of them and prefers not to sign up with them. Can he transfer our license to my Syncfusion account or can I request for a new license key for the company?
