Troubleshooting NuGet

If you get stuck, we also have a full walk-through on how to setup NuGet at the page Getting Nightly Builds with NuGet

Installing from GitHub

If you are a  SciChart Source-Code Customer you can get access to our Git-Hub repository by going to www.scichart.com/profile and linking your Github.com username with SciChart after you have activated your developer license.

For more details on how to access SciChart via Github, please see http://www.scichart.com/github-repository-for-scichart-source-code-customers

Once you have done that, you should be able to access the SciChart WPF or SciChart 3D WPF repositories.

NOTE: Both these links will show HTTP404 unless you have completed the steps above to activate your GitHub Access

The source-code can be checked out in SVN client, Git client or downloaded as a zip. The repository is read-only however, you can create forks (branches) and make modifications in there.

IMPORTANT! if your support-expires and you do not renew a SciChart subscription, we will have to remove your access to the github repository. You can keep any code you received during your support-window but any forks you created will be deleted and cannot be recovered. This is a github limitation and we are unable to workaround it. Please take a backup of any forks (branches) of the SciChart source before your support-expires if you do not intend to renew.
