The SpreadsheetGear 2017 family of products includes SpreadsheetGear 2017 for .NET and SpreadsheetGear 2017 for Silverlight.

You can learn about installing SpreadsheetGear for .NET Standard here.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 installation requires administrative privileges.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 for .NET requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, .NET 3.0, .NET 3.5, .NET 4.0, .NET 4.5, .NET 4.6 or .NET 4.7. SpreadsheetGear 2017 WPF controls and multithreaded recalc require .NET 4.0, .NET 4.5, .NET 4.6 or .NET 4.7.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 for Silverlight requires Silverlight 5.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 for .NET supports x86 and x64 versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 (including R2), Windows Server 2012 (including R2) and Windows Server 2016.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 works best with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, Visual Studio 2010, Visual Studio 2012, Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio 2015 or Visual Studio 2017. Visual Studio is not a requirement.

Note that Visual Studio 2017 does not support Silverlight.

SpreadsheetGear 2017 may be installed and used on computers with previous versions of SpreadsheetGear for .NET (such as SpreadsheetGear 2010 or SpreadsheetGear 2012). However, it is not possible to use two versions of SpreadsheetGear in a single .NET application.

For the most trouble free installation experience, please remove previously installed versions of SpreadsheetGear 2017 before installation. The SpreadsheetGear 2017 installers will attempt to update any previous installations of SpreadsheetGear 2017, but this will not always work, particularly if the previous SpreadsheetGear 2017 installation has been installed from a network drive or from the Internet.

Please close all running instances of Visual Studio while installing SpreadsheetGear 2017.

The SpreadsheetGear 2017 installers attempt to register the SpreadsheetGear Help with Visual Studio, making the SpreadsheetGear 2017 help available from the Visual Studio help system.

The installers also attempt to register the applicable WorkbookView and FormulaBar Windows Forms, WPF and Silverlight controls with Visual Studio.

The Express versions of Visual Studio do not support the APIs used by SpreadsheetGear 2017 for this registration process, so you must manually register the WorkbookView and FormulaBar controls.
