System requirements for 100.14

This page lists system requirements for the 100.14 release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, which contains APIs to develop apps for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows UI Library (WinUI) 3, 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.

System requirements for recent previous releases are linked to from the bottom of this page. For older system requirements, see past guide versions in PDF format on the downloads page (requires sign-in).
