Setup guide for Windows (64-bit)

This guide will prepare your Windows machine for local development with the SpatialOS worker SDK which is available in C++, C#, Java, and as an even lower-level C API.

  • To use Unity to make SpatialOS games, see the GDK for Unity documentation.
  • To use Unreal to make SpatialOS games, see the GDK for Unreal documentation.

You need to have access to SpatialOS to download the worker SDK.

1. System requirements

We support up-to-date versions of Windows 7 and 10.

Before following the setup guide check that your machine meets the hardware requirements.

If you’re using a corporate network with a strict firewall, raise a support request (for customers with a service agreement) or ask on our forums and we’ll take you through some custom setup steps.

2. Install SpatialOS

Download the SpatialOS installer and follow the steps.

This installs:

  • the SpatialOS CLI
  • the SpatialOS Launcher
  • the 32-bit Visual C++ Redistributable
  • the 64-bit Visual C++ Redistributable

If you don’t want to set up SpatialOS using the installer, see the alternative setup steps for Windows.

Next steps

Follow the worker setup guide in C++, C#, Java, or C.
