ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET contains APIs to develop apps for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Universal Windows Platform (UWP), Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Forms (cross-platform projects for Android, iOS and UWP). Each API has specific system requirements for your development machine as well as for the machines and devices to which you will deploy your app.

The following table gives an overview of supported development configurations for each ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET platform.

  • x86 - For targeting Android-supported devices with CPUs that support the x86 (or IA-32) instruction set (typically emulators).

ArcGIS platform products

  • Portal for ArcGIS: To work with Portal for ArcGIS use version 10.2 or higher.
  • Web maps built with the 2.0 or higher version of the web map specification are required (from Portal for ArcGIS 10.3 and above).
