Add a New SDK

From RAD Studio
Jump to: navigation, search

Go Up to SDK Manager

Tools > Options > Deployment > SDK Manager > Add

Projects Window | right-click a platform in Target Platforms | Properties | Add New (SDK (Software Development Kit))

The Add a New SDK dialog box lets you add a new SDK to the SDK Manager.

For either macOS or iOS applications, adding an SDK is required.
For Android, adding an SDK is not necessary because one is added automatically during the installation.

For troubleshooting information, see SDK Manager.

Options Description

Select a platform

Select the target platform for the SDK. The SDK files are then used to build applications for this platform. See Supported Target Platforms.

Select a profile to connect
(only macOS and iOS)

Select the connection profile to connect to the Platform Assistant server running on the Mac. RAD Studio pulls the SDK files into your development system from the machine specified in the connection profile. See Creating and Testing a Connection Profile on the Development PC.

The drop-down list contains the existing connection profiles that support the target platform. Select Add New to open the Create a Connection Profile wizard and create a new connection profile that supports the target platform.

Select an SDK version

Select an SDK version to add to your development system.

The drop-down list contains SDK versions for the target platform that are either provided by the Platform Assistant server (macOS and iOS) or detected as installed in your development system (Android). The list of available SDK versions depends on the platform (and connection profile) previously selected.

Note: For iOS, the drop-down list may show unsupported versions of the iOS SDK. Do not select them. RAD Studio does not support versions of the iOS SDK lower than 8.0. If the drop-down list does not show a supported version of the iOS SDK, make sure that you have the latest version of Xcode installed on your Mac. See Installing Xcode on a Mac.

If the drop-down list is empty or an expected SDK is missing, see SDK Manager, Troubleshooting.

Make the selected SDK active

Check this option for the new SDK to be the default SDK for the selected platform.
