Asked On June 5, 2008 02:00 PM UTC

I installed SyncFusion 6.3.0.8, opened the dashboard, ran "Re-initalize Visual Studio.NET Toolbox" and "Run Assembly Manager".

Still, the VS 2008 Toolbox does not contain any SyncFusion components.

After reading this thread (https://www.syncfusion.com/support/forums/message.aspx?MessageID=70490) I checked "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies". There are no SuncFusion DLLs in that folder.

What other steps should I try so that SyncFusion components will be added to the IDE?

Thanks,
Robert Claypool

P.S. (Additional Info)

- OS = Windows Server 2003 R2
- VS 2005 has never been installed (only 2008)
- No previous versions of SyncFusion have been installed
- Visual Studio was closed throughout all installation steps.
- No beta products have ever been installed (such as MVC, Silverlight or Entity Framework)

Hope that helps. Thanks Again, RC

Hi Robert,

Regarding Assemblies install location :

Basically, the .NET framework 3.5 assemblies are installed to GAC and Reference Assemblies folder.
C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5

Regarding Toolbox Installer :

Could you please try the following :

Please delete the .tbd files present in the following location.(If there exists)

C:\Documents and Settings\{YourUserProfile}\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0

Also we advice you to take backup of these files before deleting it.

2. Then run the Toolbox installer from the dashboard.

Please try this and let us know if you need any further details.

Regards,
Karthik

Me too.

Event adding a direct reference to the precompiled assemblies in folder "precompiledassemblies/6.3.0.6/2.0/" is not allowed. Visual Studio complains that these assemblies are only compatible to a newer version of .Net Framework.

Hi Antonio,

Basically, With v6.3.0.6 we ship both .NET framework 2.0 ad .NET framework 3.5 assemblies.

During the installation, we target the .NET framework 2.0 assemblies to VS2005 and .NET framework 3.5 assemblies to vs2008.

Since VS2008 supports multi-targeting. We need to perform the following step before starting devlopment with vs2008 with TargetFramework set to 2.0.

Could you please try the following utility from the below location.

MultiTargetManager.zip

In this utility, Please select .NET Framework 2.0 to develop applications and then press the button "Start Action". Once successfully completed please open the IDE.

Also, You need to add syncfusion 2.0 assemblies to the VS toolbox manually.

Please try this and let us know if you need any further information.

Regards,
Karthik

Hi Karthik,

Thanks for your reply.

"C:\Documents and Settings\{MyUserProfile}\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0" (and subfolders) do not contain any .tbd files.

I also checked my VS 2008 projects. They all target .Net 3.5 Framework.

I ran the toolbox installer on Dashboard and still no tools.

Any other ideas? Thanks, RC

Hi Robert,

Could you please try the following way of adding Syncfusion controls.

1. Open VS2008 , and create a new windows or web projects.

2. Right click on the Toolbox Tab and Select "Add Tab". Name it as "Syncfusion".

3. Now right-click on the newly created Tab and select "Choose Items", then a Choose Items dialog box will appear in that select the Syncfusion Controls and Click ok.

This will add controls to the Toolbox.

Please try this and let us know if you need any futher details.

Regards,
Karthik

Hi Karthik,

Your suggestion works perfectly. Thanks for the help.

I actually added the controls earlier this week, but they were not being persisted from one instance of VS to the next. The components could be added, but they would disappear from the toolbox next time Visual Studio was opened.

Now that's not the case. I'm glad it is working.

Thanks again, RC
