Forgive my newbness, but how do I get the .NET ArcGIS SDK? I can't access any of the ArcGIS templates when I create a new project in Visual Studio.

I'm using Visual Studio 2010, SP1 and ArcGIS 10.1.

I'm VERY green WRT to programming with ArcObjects and I think I'm missing something really simple!

    It is on the ArcGIS installation media. – blah238 Mar 14 '14 at 19:36

Run setup.exe from the SDK_dotnet directory in the ArcGIS Desktop install folder

  • Thanks! It's a work computer and I didn't have any installation media. Finally found the right person to help after this answer! – Emily H. Mar 17 '14 at 17:51

you need to contact esri's customer care to get an authorization number for VBA.


  • that's right, but the question is not asking about ArcObjects VBA SDK, but about ArcObjects SDK for .NET. – lavarider Mar 14 '14 at 22:11
