Set Installer’s mode is to Offline to Install Older Releases of Spread .NET with WPF


When installing components using the Spread .NET Installer to install components from a version older than our most up-to-date release, it must be in Offline Mode to select the older releases components.

Customers tend to reach out with the inquiry:

I am trying to install v12 but after downloading and opening the Spread .NET Installer I only see the latest releases components.

This typically is solved by simply changing the mode to Offline, see gif at the bottom for another reference

Steps to Complete:

1. Check for Offline Mode

2. Extract to Correct Path

3. Follow Offline Install Instructions

Getting Started:

Ensure files were extracted to the correct path:

Following the ReadMe file that is apart of every release download files: C:\Users[YOU]\AppData\Local\GcInstaller\Offline

Note: If you are unable to find the AppData file, this is because Windows hides it by default
