How do I know if I have the latest version of IDE Tools installed

March 28th, 2011

First of all, you need to know what version of IDE Tools is currently installed on your machine. Sometimes it is not as obvious as it should be, especially for the free product versions like CodeRush Xpress, Refactor! for ASP.NET, Refactor for C++. If you have the DevExpress menu inside the Visual Studio environment, go to the DevExpress | About menu item:

DevExpress About menu item

and note the version shown there:

DevExpress About dialog

The version is 10.1.10 in the sample.

If you use free alternative versions of the IDE Tools, and don’t see the DevExpress menu, you might want to make it visible. See the following topic, to learn how to do it.

Now, the most recent versions of IDE tools are listed on the DevExpress version info page. There you may also obtain instructions on how to update them:

DevExpress Support Services - Current Version/Build

Scroll down the page, to see where the latest official version is:

Latest DevExpress IDE Tools version list

If the version you have currently installed is not the same as the version listed on the version info page, I would strongly recommend updating to the latest version.
