System requirements for 100.6.0

This page lists system requirements for the 100.6.0 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, which 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 deploy your app.

View system requirements for past releases by downloading past guide versions in PDF format from the downloads page (requires sign-in).

The sections below provide requirements for using ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (Xamarin.Android) for development on different platforms. For Microsoft's information on setting up your development environment for Xamarin.Android or Xamarin.Forms see the following topics:

Requirements for developing on macOS

  • A Mac computer running an operating system listed below:
    • High Sierra 10.13 minimum
  • Development environment: Visual Studio 2019 for Mac or Visual Studio 2017 for Mac
    • Xamarin.Android—Current Stable channel release recommended

Requirements for developing on Windows

Supported operating systems:

  • Windows 10 Version 1703 (Build 15063 / Creators Update)
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 7 SP1

Development environment on WindowsVersion

Visual Studio 2019

2019 with workload 'Mobile development with .NET'

Visual Studio 2017

2017 with workload 'Mobile development with .NET'

Supported emulators/simulators

  • Google Android Emulator
  • Genymotion

AR toolkit

AR Toolkit for Xamarin.Android requires use of the d8 compiler. Using the legacy dx compiler results in a compile-time error.

Requirements for deploying your apps

Your apps can run on Android phones and tablets with the Android platform version 4.4 KitKat (API level 19) and above. Latest version is recommended.

2D (MapView): OpenGL ES 2.0

3D (SceneView): OpenGL ES 3.0

CPU architecture

The following app configuration CPU architectures are supported:

  • armeabi-v7a - For targeting Android-supported devices with CPUs based on the 32-bit ARMv7 architecture.
  • arm64-v8a - For targeting Android-supported devices with CPUs based on the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture.
  • x86 - For targeting Android-supported devices with CPUs that support the x86 (or IA-32) instruction set (typically emulators).

Requirements for ArcGIS software and connected services

To use ArcGIS Server data or services in your app, use ArcGIS Server version 10.3 or later. To use ArcGIS Server data when your app is offline, use ArcGIS Server version 10.3 or later.

To create mobile map packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.2 or later.

To create mobile scene packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later.

To create next generation locators (*.loz), use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later. Next generation locators are only supported on 64-bit apps.

To create annotation layers for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later. Annotation layers can be published to mobile map packages or to a service that uses ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.7 or later.

ArcGIS Desktop version 10.3 or later is required if you're using the Create Runtime Content capability. You can create ArcGIS Runtime SDK content in the ArcMap user interface or with the Create Runtime Content geoprocessing tool.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK works with ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.3 or later portals, and web maps created with these portals.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK works with utility network schema versions 2 and 3.

Local Server is supported on Windows. Local Server is not supported on Android or iOS.
