System requirements for 100.6.0

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.

Note:

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

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

Requirements for app development

The requirements for the machine on which you develop your WPF apps.

Operating system

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

Testing and debugging applications built with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET requires installation of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2019.

.NET Framework

Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.6.1 minimum. Latest version is recommended.

Development environment

Supported versions of Visual Studio

  • Visual Studio 2019 (with workload '.NET desktop development')
  • Visual Studio 2017 (with workload '.NET desktop development')

Note:

NuGet packages can be referenced within Visual Studio 2015 from NuGet.org or downloaded to the existing Esri local NuGet repository (%localappdata%\Esri\NuGet).

DirectX

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET uses DirectX to provide high-performance rendering of maps and scenes.

  • Direct3D feature level 9_3 minimum.
  • Default: DirectX 11 hardware support.
  • Falls back to DirectX 11 software rendering if hardware support is not available.

Requirements for deployment targets

The requirements for the target machine or device to which you deploy your WPF apps.

Operating System

  • Windows Server 2019 (64-bit)
  • Windows 10 Version 1703 (Build 15063 / Creators Update)
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows 7 SP1

Deployment of applications built with ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET require:

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. When your app uses web maps, it must use web maps built with the 2.0 or later) version of the web map specification, which come from Enterprise version 10.3 or later portals. When you save a web map from an app, you are saving a web map that adheres to version 2.9 of the web map specification. These should only be saved back to portals that support the 2.0 web map specification.

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.
