    Posted: 23-Jun-2010 at 1:40pm
I have a virtual machine running Win7 and VS2010 and DevExpress 10.1.4. I have installed the latest version of Devforce 2009 (5.2.7.0/3.7.0.0). I have sucessfully converted an Winforms application developed with VS2008. The application executes just fine. The problem is with the Winform Designers. I created a new form and added the Devforce Designer controls to the toolbox sucessfully. When I try to specify my preferences for controls in the Control Binding Manager DevExpress 10.1 is listed as a choice but when I try to check it I get a dialog saying that the DevExpress 10.1 control suite cannot be loaded.

I could not reproduce your problem.  I could set preferences in my sample solution just fine to the new DevExpress 10.1.4 control suite using a VM that had VS2010 but no VS2008.
 
Are you running on a 64-bit machine?  If so, there is a known problem when using the Assembly Binding Redirector.
 
Which version of 5.2.7.0 are you using?  An early version released to a few customers a few weeks ago or the version that was released last week?
 
Can you see "IdeaBlade.UI.WinForms.DevExpressControls.v10_1_4" in the GAC?

I am running the VM on a 64 bit machine but the VM is 32 bit. I'm using the Devforce 2009 5.2.7.0 that is released last week. All of the concerned assembliess are visible in the GAC. I'll search the forum for the 64 bit postings and see if there is a post that might help me.

Here is the advice on 64-bit (from a customer):
 
 I Figured out the problem with the XtraGridBindingManager.

I am running 64 bit Vista and when installing the devexpress .net bindings (at the end of the DevForce install), it only installs the bindings in the /Framework64/Vx.xx/Config/Machine.config file.  I copied the xml from the 64 bit framework into /Framework/Vx.xx/Config/Machine.config and I could use the binding manager.

Wasnt sure if this was a known problem, and whether you wanted to update your install, but just thought Id let you know what I found.

We have had a Preferences problem with other versions of DevExpress (e.g., 9.1, 9.2, 9.3).  For example, see:
 
 
I have never been able to get a reproducible case, so we were never able to fix the problem.
 
As a next step, I would like you to see if you can get more information frim the fusion log viewer.

David,
Thank you for your help on this. I looked at the machine.connfig and there were no redirects for any of the DevExpress assemblies so I copied that section from the host machine which is has Devforce 5.2.3.0/3.6.9.0 to the VM's machine.config and then modified the version info for DevExpress 10.1.4.0. I can now set the preference for DevExpress in the Control Binding Manager. The interesting thing is that the host is a 64-bit machine and I have never had any problems installing Devforce for VS2008. I have not tried to install Devforce 2009 on the host yet however. As I previously indicated the VM is running 32-bit Win 7. When I install Devforce 2009 on the VM I never get any of the dialogs which asks about the redirection as I normally get. I know that there are still some issuse with installing the Winforms stuff with VS2010 i.e. the toolbox is not populated. Should the binding redirectioin dialogs show up when installing on VS2010?

Dave,
I ran the fusion log viewer on the VM and nothing displayed. I'm not familiar with this utility so you may need to provide me with more instruction on what you want. I did just remember something that may or may not be relevant. The VM was created using a differencing disk. I use the differencing disk technique so I can quickly spin up a new VM.

I am happy to see that you now have Preferences working.  Let me know if you have problems later on.  Some have claimed that they could fix their Preferences problem, but the fix was not permanent.
 
You will only get a prompt for assembly redirection if there is a need for assembly redirection.
 
In your case there is no need for assembly redirection.
