    The Spread for WinForms controls are shared assemblies; therefore, these DLLs are also added to the global assembly cache (GAC) during installation. The FarPoint.Win.Spread.Design.dll (the Spread Designer assembly) and FarPoint.Win.Ink.dll are also added to the GAC. The FarPoint.Win.TextRenderer.dll is not installed to the GAC. Add this DLL as a project reference in order to use it with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 or later.

    If you want to take advantage of the ink capabilities of Spread Win, you will need to install the runtime components of the Microsoft Tablet PC SDK. The FarPoint.Win.Ink assembly is currently built with version 1.7 of the Microsoft Tablet PC SDK.

    Special thanks to the SharpDevelop Team for allowing us to use the SharpZipLib file compression library. You may download the modified SharpZipLib source code used in the Spread Excel assembly for xlsx file compression from GrapeCity.
