Upgrading your Visual Studio projects after installing new version of DevExpress

Here is the case:

  • You have already installed DevExpress
  • You have projects which are using DevExpress components on Visual Studio
  • You would like to install new version of DevExpress and using new components at your current projects

visual-studio-devexpress

Here is the remedy:

  • Do not remove previous version of DevExpress!!
  • Install new version. So two versions will be installed at the same time.
  • Upgrade your projects by using ProjectConverter (Start -> All Programs -> Developer Express v2012 vol 2 -> Components -> Tools -> ProjectConverter)
  • Remove previous version

You’re all set!
