No Xafari Controls Available


I am very frustrated with this. I have tried the DevExpress Repair Toolbox option. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. When I installed the Trial I could see all the Xafari items in m tool box but not, after buying a subscription and activating I cannot add to a new solution and older solution with the trial version no longer works.

Errors like: this.xafariEditorsWinModule1 = new Xafari.Editors.Win.XafariEditorsWinModule();
this.xafariModule1 = new Xafari.XafariModule();
this.xafariEditorsModule1 = new Xafari.Editors.XafariEditorsModule();
this.xafariWinModule1 = new Xafari.Win.XafariWinModule();
Message 1 The designer cannot process unknown name 'xafariEditorsWinModule1' at line 47. The code within the method 'InitializeComponent' is generated by the designer and should not be manually modified. Please remove any changes and try opening the designer again.

I will try another reboot but so far very disappointed.

I finally downloaded what I think is a more recent version than what I received in a link after I placed my order. File name in the link had 16.1 while newer file had 16.2 - as in DevExpress XAF 16.2 - latest release. I installed this newer version on still no XAFARI controls - so I manually browsed for the controls.
I am currently moving applications from XAF 16.1 to 16.2 so thought this might help. Activation manager now shows 16.2.3010 - which seems newer than the file I was originally sent as a download link in the email after my order.

The controls I added manually now show in the toolbox.

Hello Dennis,

You can read the following informations for the interest:
If you work with Xafari, your DevExpress version have to be 16.1.8.
If you work with Xafari, your DevExpress version have to be 16.2.3.
(The first two segments correspond to the major and minor DevExpress version (on which depends the Xafari version):
DX – 16.2.x, Xafari – 16.2.x0c.d
The third segment is formed by the rule: x0c, where x – DevExpress build number, c – Xafari version number
DX – 16.2.3, Xafari – 16.2.3010
The fourth segment is a sequential build number of Xafari version
Xafari – 16.2.3010.994)
If you are installing a new version of Xafari, you must close the Visual Studio and remove old version of Xafari.

If you have problems with Xafari Toolbox after install new version Xafari Framework, you can follow the instructions:
- install Xafari Tools using path: Start -> Xafari Framework v16.2.3010 -> Tools -> Install VS Toolbox as administrator, and repair Toolbox for VS;
- open your Registry Editor -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\your version (number your VS)\ToolboxControlsInstaller and check Xafari v... tools.

We hope you find this information helpful.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Thanks, Sasha.

Hi Dennis,

Please inform us of your results.

Best regards,


It seems like the My Downloads link should point to the latest release of XAF - they just released an update by the way.
If you work with Xafari, your DevExpress version have to be 16.1.8.
If you work with Xafari, your DevExpress version have to be 16.2.3.

The link for my account to the download is to a 16.1 version - to get a current release I have to go to the main download page not the one for my account.
Really, I have been so disappointed with my early experiences with Xafari I may never use it. Quite different the the Expandframework.

Oh well - my two cents.
