Project Manager | 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. This step is required for developing either Mac OS X or iOS applications. For developing Android applications, you do not need to add an SDK if you are using the default Android SDK and NDK as installed during product installation. For more information, see Installing the Android Development Tools.

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 Mac OS X 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 is either provided by the Platform Assistant server (Mac OS X 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.

Make the selected SDK active

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