  • If you have a Standard ESRI license, know your license code. Contact ESRI to acquire your license code.
  • From the ESRI ArcGIS web site, download and install the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET version 10.2.X on all workstations that will access or modify the map.
For more information about applying for an ESRI license, see the ESRI ArcGIS website.
