DevExpress DXGrid for WPF and Visual Studio Express

Turns out that the DevExpress installer does not integrate DXGrid with Express editions of Visual Studio. Solution is:

1.Manually add references for following assemblies:
DevExpress.Data.v9.2.dll
DevExpress.Wpf.Core.v9.2.dll
DevExpress.Wpf.Editors.v9.2.dll
DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.v9.2.dll

2. Manually add namespace to XAML:
xmlns:dxg="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/grid"

You can then add your element as usual.

DevExpress Support also say that you can manually add the following assemblies to the Toolbox to achieve designer support, but that didn’t work for me:
C:Program FilesDevExpress 2009.2ComponentsSourcesDevExpress.DLLDevExpress.Wpf.Editors.v9.2.dll
C:Program FilesDevExpress 2009.2ComponentsSourcesDevExpress.DLLDevExpress.Wpf.Grid.v9.2.dll
