I am looking into the PureComponents .NET Suite for a Winforms project. The controls seem to offer a lot of nice function but I am concerned about their stability. Does anyone have experience with these controls?

I would recommend the Nevron .NET Vision controls: http://www.nevron.com
Thursday, March 10, 2011 3:12 PMI've bought .NET Winforms 2010.1 last week.
It's a SWINDLE.
Nobody answer by email.
No phone number
No postal address
It's not installing well under Win 7x64 with Visual Studio 2010.
Somebody called STEVE already 'work' in PureComponents company so this post is an ADVERTISEMENT.
DON'T BUY THEIR PRODUCTS
Friday, March 25, 2011 3:31 PMHmmmm, that's a shame. I have been using PureComponents controls in my X86 Windows applications (some very complex) since 2008 and have not experienced a problem getting customer support. Of course, I have not requested support for over a year but these controls in my opinion are very stable.

Again, I've not needed support, but I haven't had any problems either.

For those of you that are not having problems, would you mind discussing how
you got the components to work??
I am having a great difficulty in initializing the component and assigning
values, I have never seen or had any other components that were so
deeply subbed and required such an extensive line of code for one value.
I just purchased, luckily very cheaply, and have no support response after

<*Sigh*> I'm right there with you. I fell for it too. You get what you pay for. The controls look great and work great in the demos, but I can't get past the licensing to even be able to create code to test in debug mode. It does look like they have abandoned ship at this point. Even the customer portal has been shut down and the web site is reduced to one page.
On a good note, at least I can use their tools to learn from. And I've learned a valuable lesson in purchasing software.
If anyone knows how to get past the license issue for debugging, can you please let us know?

I purchased the Winforms Suite but after my laptop died and I lost the licence key I re-installed the software however after three months still can't get anyone to reply to my requests to re-supply the licence.
PureComponents support sucks!

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
I purchased it last year (with source code) and I only got to use it now and this is a complete con to get people to buy it for cheap and not only do they product not work, their support is practically non-existent. It's that bad that it's been removed from the likes of ComponentSource.com
Since I had the code, I decided to give it a shot and remove the licensing element out of it, and after spending a couple of hours on it and getting one of their main libraries to compile and get a solution to compile, I'm still getting error that some files are not found when it should not be the case.
I could technically try to do the other 2 remaining main components, but I have a feeling I'll be waisting my time!!!
Seriously dissapointing ... As someone else above (or elsewhere said!)... I guess you get what you paid for!!! The sad part is when you look at the code, it's actually quite clean & documented, but still dissapoiting overall..
We use much dearer product in our main product and while this was for a personal project, I can see why I'd recommend these products over this one any day!!!
There are other products out there which are seriously reliable and I know as I've used them in the past and that are also "cheap" ($300) and while they still don't beat the $1500 from larger companies in regards to features, they still provided amazing features for the price.
Don't know if I can advertise for them, so I won't post their name here, but look around and you'll find them!! JUST DON'T BUY FROM PureComponents.com!!!
Still can't believe I'm still getting their "promotional" news letters considering the state of the product!! They are obviously trying to con as many people as possible and for as long as possible!!!

Yes, the support of PurComponents sucks. I don't get any answer after 4 mails, but in the beginning it was very good. The answer comes after 12-24 hours. And the documentation are not so good and not so bad.
I'm using the PureComponents since about 3 years and they are stabil.
And I'm using the 60 Free Controls from DevExpress.

PureComponents.ActionSet.Licensing.RunTimeLicenseKey = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX";
PureComponents.EntrySet.Licensing.RunTimeLicenseKey = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX";
PureComponents.ScheduleSet.Licensing.RunTimeLicenseKey = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX";
in our program.cs[Main] before anything else. I did notice that we are using the 2009 version. I personally like the suite. I don't think anyone has anything to complain about spending $19.00 for a site license.

I've been using PureComponents since 2008. Support used to be good but now, like others have mentioned, zero response to emails. Before trying to contact them I went ahead and bought 2010 for $19 then it sat there for a year and here I am now trying to use it to upgrade an existing application. So NO, using something else is not an option.
However, now that I'm using VS 2010 these dumb components will not license at all!
It was never an issue before:
Public Sub New() PureComponents.EntrySet.Licensing.RunTimeLicenseKey = "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx........." ' This call is required by the designer. InitializeComponent() ' Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call. End Sub
This just does not work at all. That dang trial popup comes up on the production machines. Dev machine is fine.
Everyone gets the source with purchase. Has anyone looked to see if all this nonsense can be diverted?

I had the same when I was changed to VS2010. Then I deleted the license file. After publish a new version the Trial Popup was gone.

I have Visual Studio 2010 64 bit also. I did buy this and it will not install. The software uses a custom toolbox manager utility. Seems whoever created the installer forgot to update it in the code to install into Studio 2010 but I found you can do it manually. Here is how:
Close Visual Studio
Reinstall PureComponents so everything gets unregistered and then "reinstalled" even though the toolbar won't be updated yet.
Don't open Studio until you complete these steps:
Find the path to the PureCompenets. Mine was:
C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1
In there was a bin folder and a help folder. The bin folder has the components and the help folder has toolbox commandline utility:
Call up a command line box (CMD) window.
Enter the following three lines adjusting the path names if needed:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\Help\toolbox.exe" /vs2010 /installdesktop "C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\bin\PureComponents.ActionSet.fw40.dll" "PureComponents"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\Help\toolbox.exe" /vs2010 /installdesktop "C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\bin\PureComponents.EntrySet.fw40.dll" "PureComponents"
"C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\Help\toolbox.exe" /vs2010 /installdesktop "C:\Program Files (x86)\PureComponents\PureComponents .NET WinForms Suite V2011.1\bin\PureComponents.ScheduleSet.fw40.dll" "PureComponents"
That should get your controls into the ToolBox for you if they are missing. If you want to see all the command line switches the utility has, just double click the tool box utility and a window will open to show you all the commands. Hope this helps!!!

So one question since PureComponents doesn't seem to be answering my email. I've got both VS2008 and VS2010 installed and it installed PureComponent items into both toolboxes.
Kicker is the calendar controls that are installed in VS2010 are missing from the VS2008 toolbox after installation.'
Are they just not available for VS2008?

DO NOT buy purecomponent !
No support, no doc no sample NOTHING !
moreover their controls are a hell for visual designer, it is a layer above usual controls, very slow to react, sometime not refreshed properly. A must NOT have !
