I've downloaded and installed the evaluation version of the Syncfusion but when I open VS 2010 the tools aren't in the toolbox.

I tried registering them through the "Toolbox Configuration" in the Studio but still nothing.

I have the assemblies in C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Assemblies\4.0.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with VS 2010 Professional.

Hi Sagy,

Thanks for using our Syncfusion products.

If you are using VS2010 to develop the Windows Forms application, ensure that your project target framework was ".NET Framework 4". If it has set to ".NET Framework 4 Client Profile" instead of ".NET Framework 4" then, Could you please change the target framework to resolve the reported issue?

Right click over the Visual Studio 2010 Toolbox tab and click "Show All" option. Ensure that Syncfusion controls has registered in Toolbox tab.

If it does not shows any Syncfusion controls, could you please follow the below steps to resolve the issue?
1. Open the Syncfusion Dashboard.
2. Close all running instances of Visual Studio 2010.
3. In "Toolbox Configuration" option Click "Install VS2010".
4. Reopen the Visual Studio 2010. This will configures the Syncfusion controls in Visual Studio 2010.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

As I noted in the message I've already tried what you are suggesting.

I ended up creating the toolbox manually - let's see if it will work.

I followed up the last mentioned steps to manually add the controls by adding a tab but I am not having any listing for Syncfusion in .Net Framework Componenets tab.

The Syncfusion version I have installed is  Essential Studio and Visual studio is 2010. The OS is MS Server 2003 R2.


Please let me know how can I get the Syncfusion controls in ToolBox !

Hi Sreejith,

Could you please ensure Syncfusion assemblies are installed in GAC?

GAC location:

For 2.0 and 3.5 Assemblies: {BootDrive}\Windows\Assmbly
Eg: C:\Windows\Assembly

For 4.0 Assemblies: {BootDrive}\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL
Eg: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL

If Syncfusion assemblies are not exits in GAC, Please follow the below link to install the Syncfusion assemblies.

After Syncfusion assemblies are installed into GAC then try again the mentioned in above update for toolbox.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
