There are two ways to install SDK:

- If you have UNIGINE SDK Browser downloaded at the UNIGINE developer portal:
To start your project with UNIGINE SDK you need to install the required software to prepare the development environment:
- IDE — we recommend to use Microsoft Visual C++ 2015+ (C#/C++), Visual Studio Code (C#/C++), Rider (C#), Qt Creator (mostly used for Qt framework development, but also suitable for regular C++ projects).
- CMake 3.16 or higher (can be downloaded for free). CMake is a tool that simplifies project building for different platforms.
- .NET 5 SDK (can be downloaded for free). It is required to develop projects using C# Component System. See here how to install .NET SDK and check its version.
- Python 2.7 (can be downloaded for free) — required to use the build script.
