I have a registered copy of essential grid but when I try to deploy, I have two main problems:

1. If I use the vs2005 msi to create the installer, the syncfusion assemblies get copied over to the end-user's machine. But when the user tries to run the app from the start menu, there is a licensing error.

2. When using a 3rd party installer (like installshield), I use 'copy to local' when building the program and then I add these assemblies to the installation package, but it doesn't work on the end-user's computer. There is window's error message filenotfound exception.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi coder,

Please follow this kb article to remove the licensing error popup message.


Please follow this KB article in order to deploy the Windows Forms application which was built using Syncfusion components.

Make sure that you have Syncfusion.core.dll in the output directory. If not, please copy and paste that dll from the precompiled assemblies folder ([installed drive]:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\\2.0) to the output directory and run the deployed project.

Now use the vs2005 msi to create the installer and please let me know if this helps.

I will work on 3rd party installer installshield and will reply you the details.

Thank you for your interest in Essential Studio.

Hi Ramu,

I've been looking for the license.licx file in my VS2005 IDE, but I can't seem to find it. I can see it in the project directory using Windows Explorer, though.

I'm not sure how to change the 'Build Action' property to be 'Embedded Resource'

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I just figured out how to access the license.licx file in the IDE.

Should I also always 'Copy to Output Directory'?
