    Could you provide instructions on how to add fpspread to a VB 2022 solution?

    You can add Spread in your project using NuGet. Just install the Grapecity.Spread.Winforms NuGet package in your project and you will be able to see the Spread in the toolbox. Then you can drag-drop FpSpread on your form and start using it.

    Hi Avnish,
    In a .NET 6.0 target Framework project:
    When I install Spread through NuGet and then install C1 Ribbon through NuGet I get an Error:

    Which I have to believe is caused by the Compile time Assemblies included with the Spread NuGet package:

    We have escalated this case to the development team to get their insights on the issue and will let you know when we have an upate.

    Has anything happened? It has been almost a month. . . .

    The development team is working on creating new separate NuGet packages for Spread and its design-time assemblies. Since it's complicated splitting the NuGet package into 2 separate ones and ensuring that everything works correctly, it might take some time. We will let you know as soon as we have any updates.

    So I am to understand there is no way to use spread in a winforms VB 2022 .NET 6 solution with a C1Ribbon? I have tried C1Button/C1TreeView and they work. There is no work around?

    Sorry for the inconvenience but currently Spread 15 Nuget package contains C1Ribbon and related assemblies to make the spread designer work which might conflict with the existing C1 assemblies in the project. The team is working on a fix for this and separating the NuGet package into two packages so you would be able to use C1 and Spread it together in the project. The ETA for the fix is the Spread 15 SP1 release.
    Currently, there is no workaround except using the NET4.5.2 controls in the project with Spread 15 or using Spread 14 that does not have this issue.
