After the Syncfusion Essential Studio setup is installed, the Syncfusion ToolBox controls are automatically configured in the Visual Studio.  In some cases, the ToolBox is not configured in the Visual Studio ToolBox. The following cases explain how to resolve the ToolBox configuration issues.

Case 1: The Syncfusion Essential Studio setup installed before installing the Visual Studio

When the Syncfusion Essential Studio setup is installed before installing the Visual Studio, then the Syncfusion controls are not configured automatically. In that case, click the Recheck option located at the bottom of the corresponding version of the Syncfusion Dashboard and then run the Toolbox Installer utility from the Dashboard.

Click “Recheck” option to refresh the recently installed software in your machine

More information on the ToolBox configuration is available in the following online help documentation link:

Case 2: The Syncfusion Essential Studio setup installed after the Visual Studio setup installed

When the Syncfusion Essential Studio setup is installed after the installation of the Visual Studio setup and the Syncfusion ToolBox controls are not configured, then the following steps helps resolve the issue.

  1. Close all the Visual Studio Running instances.
  2. Remove the hidden *.tbd files except the toolbox.tbd from the following locations.

Windows XP:

Location: {Drive:}\Documents and Settings\(User name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\{Version}

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\(User name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0

Vista/Windows 7:

Location: {Drive:}\Users\{User name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\{Version}

Example:  C:\Users\{User name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0

 

To show the hidden items in the Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7:

Folder properties window and select "Show Hidden files and folder" option.

I followed these steps. Visual Studio 2017 on Windows 10 home. did not work. Still no controls. Disappeared after Visual Studio was updated to  15.4 if that helps. Targeting 4.6 framework

Same thing for me, can't get syncfusion to populate the toolbox with the syncfusion folders of controls after deletion of *.tbd files and using syncfusion control panel toolbox installer to attempt installation into toolbox.  No controls in toolbox. Window 10 Pro (Creators), Visual Studio 15.4.4 (new install), syncfusion V 15.4.0.17 installed after visual studio installation.
