To install DevExpress .NET products on your development machine, it is first necessary to obtain the DevExpress .NET Products Installer.
You can download it from the http://www.devexpress.com website in one of the following ways, based on the status of your current account.
Download the Trial Version
If you have not yet purchased DevExpress .NET products, but would like to try them, you are free to download the trial version.
Download the Registered Version
If you already have a license for DevExpress .NET products, you can download the registered version from the Client Center.
The DevExpress .NET Products Installer installs .NET assemblies, which contain the DevExpress visual controls and components, and integrates them into your Visual Studio IDE. In addition, this tool installs demo applications that illustrate the functionality provided by DevExpress .NET products.
You can run the installer in one of two modes.
GUI Install Mode
This is the graphical user interface (GUI) mode, in which you can go through the steps of the installation wizard and manually specify all install settings visually.
Silent Install Mode
This is the silent installation mode, which allows you to run the installer from a command line as a console application and specify all necessary parameters.
