Follow the given steps to run the Dashboard Viewer Embedded Win Forms Application in another Windows Machine:

  1. Refer to the Dashboard Viewer, which is embedded in Win Forms Application. It is being shipped with the Syncfusion Dashboard Platform SDK’s setup in the following location:

          %localappdata%\Syncfusion\Dashboard Platform SDK\Getting Started Samples\Windows Forms\LocalEmbeddedDashboard


  1. The Dashboard Service for this Win Forms sample is obtained from the following location and Dashboard Service will be launched in IIS Express, and this Dashboard Service will bind to the sample.

%localappdata%\Syncfusion\Dashboard Platform SDK\Service


If you want to change the Dashboard Service folder location based on target machine, you can specify the location in the DashboardWindow.cs file of the sample. For example, refer to the following code snippet:

private string serviceDirectory = "$TargetMachineFolder$\\Service"; //Path.GetFullPath(Path.Combine(@"..\..\..\..\")) + "Common\\Service";


  1. If you want to change the Dashboard (SYDX) file, then attach the file in the sample and mark the Properties as per below screen shot.


Then, change the Dashboard file name in the DashboardWindow.cs file of the sample. Refer to the following code snippet:

private string _sydxFileName = "WorldWideCarSalesDashboard.sydx";


  1. Now, compile the sample.


  1. Copy the bin folder (compiled state) of the sample, and paste it in the target machine. The Visual Studio is not required to be installed in the target machine.


  1. You can run the LocalEmbeddedDashboard.exe to render the Dashboard.



            When you run the LocalEmbeddedDashboard.exe, the Dashboard Viewer will be launched in the CefSharp browser, which requires a prerequisite called Microsoft VC++ that must be installed in the target    machine. You can download the VC++ from the following link, and install it in the target machine.


OR, download the prerequisite assembly files from here, unzip it and place the DLLs in bin folder (compiled state) of application. Refer to the Redistribution Information.

            Make sure that the Dashboard Service folder has been copied from the following location and pasted in the target machine, and then modify the service start up path as per step #2.

               %localappdata%\Syncfusion\Dashboard Platform SDK\Service

            Make sure that IIS Express installed in the target machine (to launch the Dashboard Service)
