ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET 10.2.2 Beta is available!

We are excited to announce the 10.2.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!   This SDK enables developers to build rich, high performance GIS applications for Windows PCs, tablets, and phones.  It includes three APIs that support building .NET apps for Windows Desktop, Windows Store, and Windows Phone.  The APIs share a common design and structure, which encourages sharing implementation logic across Windows platforms.  Highlights of the SDK include:

  • Combine map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premises ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
  • Search and select features and graphics in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
  • Draw and edit points, lines and polygons on the map
  • Work offline with local basemaps and data
  • Edit features locally and sync with feature services
  • Geocode addresses with a locator on your device
  • Use a local network dataset to generate routes and driving directions
  • Perform advanced geometric operations (such as project, buffer and intersect) with a local geometry engine
  • Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
  • MVVM friendly API design

Download the SDK from the Esri Beta Community.  To start, you’ll need an Esri Global account, registered with the Beta Community.  Once registered and in the ArcGIS Runtime SDK 10.2.2 for .NET beta program, click on the Software Downloads link under the Project Resources section, download the exe and install.  Feel free to use the forum to ask questions and provide feedback.  Other project resources on the beta site include release notes, samples, and a toolkit.

We invite you to browse the documentation for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET at:

    Hello ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Team,
    I was using the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps with VS 2012. After the release of this unified SDK, I’ve installed the new SDK without uninstalling the older version(Windows store apps specific version). Then i realized that the new SDK will install the “Windows store app” specific extensions only when the older version is uninstalled. So i tried to uninstall both and tried to install the new version alone, but still the setup screen lists out only “Windows Desktop” and “Windows Phone” features, I cannot see “Windows Store” feature listed in the setup wizard. Is there some thing else that i should clear off before re-installing the new sdk ? may be any registry entries ? It would be really helpful if i can get some help around this.

    Hi ,
    Is there any known issue in using the new .Net SDK in a windows store app ? I am not able to use the remote debugger and even install your sample on a 8.0 or 8.1 device for testing purposes . Specifically the use of pen .
    Is this version restricted to be installed on devices (the previous windows store SDK was fine ) or it’s a bug ?

    Your kind response is very much appreciated . We are trying to find a solution for our app with offline mapping requirement which is gonna be released in 5-6 month and your SDK seems to be a perfect match for our requirement and we are happy to take the risk of development on a beta version till your release is out (2014 Q3 I guess) .

    Thanks ,

    Have you guys considered having a Core library that is a PCL and platform specific libraries for the various UI controls? This would go a long way toward facilitating reuse of business logic when building cross-platform apps.
