Hi,

I am planning to develop my future application using .Net framework 2.0 and I wonder if the wizard could be used in this environment?

Otherwise, are you planning to deliver a beta program on this control for version 2.0? I would be available to betatest it therefore...

Thanks

Hi Amadrias, we have not thoroughly tested it on .NET 2.0 yet however it should work ok. I know of one customer who has started working with it on 2.0.

For your information, I just tried out and it seems to work perfectly. I am just wondering if the components are using a virtual hosting functionnality to simulate some of the .Net 1.1 features...

I'll keep you in touch...

Hi,

So I've stepped on using the wizard with Whidbey and it actually works perfectly...

...Except the licensing... Whatever I do, putting the .LIC in the install directory, or in the project root dir, or even the build dir, it still shows up the Eveluation dialog box.

I've checked twice and process full uninstallation and reinstallation of the component but still shows up either on compilation or run mode...

Seems that your licence functionnalities won't work with 2.0...

If you could maybe just compile your component using the beta version, it would work?... or maybe you could ask your customer how he managed to solve this problem...?

Thanks

I found a similar problem when testing. Something is not right with Whidbey's licensing yet.

I was able to get the popup to stop if you copy the LIC file to the GAC folder. You have to do it via command line and copy it to the GAC subfolder where ActiproSoftware.Wizard.dll is installed.

Guys,

This is what I call SUPPORT!!! Thank you very much!

Is there any plan on porting your components to whidbey?

Glad that worked for you too. I don't believe there is a need to port them since Whidbey should be backward compatible. The licensing thing must be a bug in .NET 2.0 or VS.NET 2005.

We are working towards getting all our controls on a common UI framework as well which will mean that Wizard will end up using our custom licensing scheme like SyntaxEditor has. That one works better with Whidbey, even now.

I'm not sure on a date for the next major version of Wizard but we plan on adding several new features too.

We are not compiling for Whidbey yet however Wizard 3.0 is based off of the same WinUICore user interface framework that SyntaxEditor 2.5 uses. That also means it will use the much improved licensing mechanism.
