SciChart WPF v4.0.2 Build 8045 Released

We are pleased to announce a Minor Update to the SciChart WPF SDK v4: SciChart WPF v4.0.2 Build 8045.

This release contains several critical bug fixes and it is recommended for all users of SciChart WPF v4 to update. We are now following semantic versioning and v4.0.2 is backwards compatible to v4.0.0. It is not backward compatible to v3.x. For this you will need to see our migration guide

What’s New in v4.0.2.8045?


  • Fixed an issue where the SciChart SDK Installer did not install the Visual C++ 2013 Runtime, meaning 3D Charts failed to load on computers without Visual Studio 2013 with MSVCP.dll not found error
  • Fixed an issue where SciChart.Charting3D did not correctly load D3DCompiler_47.dll dependency when in DirectX 9 mode, causing a crash in 3D Charts on DirectX 9 only PCs.
  • Fixed an issue where several 3D Chart Types crashed when the target computer had .NET4.0 only (not .NET 4.5 or 4.6).
  • Fixed an issue where SciChart 3D Surface Mesh wireframe did not match the surface size/shape of the mesh in some cases.
  • Fixed VerticalLineAnnotation incorrect position at startup
  • Fixed a bug with MountainSeries not skipping NaN data values and drawing gaps incorrectly


  • The SciChart.UpdaterTool is now packaged as a VSIX Visual Studio Extension. You can download it now in the Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015 gallery by following steps from our Migration Guide.
  • Also the SciChart.UpdaterTool several issues are fixed such as blank / not working updater tool on some computers.
  • The WPF Examples Suite now has a proper exception handling dialog with full stack trace, which you can send to us on error (hopefully these don’t occur!)
