Please Read Before You Start the Download
There are different installations available for 32 and 64 bit systems:
Redistribution Kit (RDK): This contains all files necessary at run-time of the MTB. If the .net Runtime is already installed on the target PC, it is possible to reduce download times by using the smaller installation without the .net Runtime.
These installations are allowed to be distributed together with the software of the licensee.
Software Development Kit (SDK): The SDK is an add-on for the RDK, containing the documentation, sample programs inclusive source code and debug tools. Prerequisite for the installation of the SDK is an installed RDK of the same MTB version.
The SDK may only be used for the software development of the licensee. It is not allowed to pass it on to others. Therefore, please use the RDK (Redistribution Kit)!
