Components cannot be added automatically to the toolbox for Express Editions.
Here is how to add them: 1 Open a window.xaml design surface 2 Right click in the toolbox section, choose “Choose Items…” 3 Choose the “WPF Components” tab 4 Click “Browse” 5 Go to the install directory of the components i.e.: C:\Program Files\Xceed\Xceed DataGrid for Wpf 2.0\bin\ Choose Xceed.Wpf.DataGrid.dll 6 Repeat step 5 to choose “Xceed.Wpf.Controls.dll”
Also, there is a related problem that was fixed in the upcoming package that prevents you from seeing the installed dlls in the “Add Reference” wizard. When you try to add the references, the dlls are not be displayed in the list from the “.NET” tab. References need to be added manually by browsing, using the “Browse” tab to the install directory (i.e.: C:\Program Files\Xceed\Xceed DataGrid for Wpf 2.0\bin\).
Let me know if that works.
