System requirements for 100.11

The system requirements are the same for developing apps whether you're using the C++ API or the QML API. See the sections below for the requirements for your development machine and target platform.

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).

OpenSSL

Because ArcGIS Runtime SDK makes network requests over https, your app requires OpenSSL to access all services with Windows, Linux, and Android. macOS and iOS make use of secure transport which should already be available on those platforms. OpenSSL is not delivered with the Qt Framework. For more information, see the Qt documentation about adding SSL support to your Qt application and the Qt SSL Classes and Qt 5.12.4 Released with support for OpenSSL 1.1.1. Verify that the version of OpenSSL you deploy is supported by your Qt version.

You can obtain OpenSSL from http://www.openssl.org/, or from https://github.com/openssl/openssl: different branches in the GitHub repository correspond to different versions of OpenSSL. Make sure that the OpenSSL libraries are available in the Qt environment when building Qt (that is, the paths to the OpenSSL include and lib folders). The exact setup required will depend on your system configuration but may include the general guidance below:

  • On Windows, you may need to copy libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll and libssl-1_1-x64.dll to the bin folder of your Qt kit.

  • For Android, refer to documentation from the Qt company on Adding Open SSL.

  • On Linux, you may need to copy libcrypto.so and libssl.so to the bin folder of your Qt kit. Alternatively, set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to a folder that contains the needed libraries.

Developing apps on Linux

Using Linux as your development environment, you can develop apps for Linux and Android. See Deploying apps to Android for a list of additional software needed for Android app development.

Video graphics adapterOpenGL 2.1 for 2D map views, 3.2 for 3D scene views Shader Model 1.2Hardware video adapter is required. Be sure to use the latest available driver.

Notes

An operating system can only be supported if it is also supported by the Qt Framework from The Qt Company. It is recommended to use the latest supported version of the operating system. Learn more about Qt licensing terms and conditions at the Qt Company website.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK and its deployments are only supported on CPUs that adhere to the x86 architecture.

It is a requirement that the operating system binary has not been modified. Esri does not provide support if products are installed on the developer's release of an operating system.

Linux patches from Ubuntu will be supported as long as the patches are from Ubuntu without any modification to the latest kernel/glibc version.

Developing apps on macOS

Using macOS as your development environment, you can develop apps for macOS, iOS, and Android. See Deploying apps to Android and Deploying apps to iOS for a list of additional software needed for Android and iOS app development.
