spatial setup install-dependencies

Checks for and installs all the software required to develop with SpatialOS for the current project's SDK version.


This command attempts to install the required software dependencies for developing with the SpatialOS SDK version of the current project.

If a specific dependency is already installed but in the wrong version, a warning is issued together with recommendations on how to install the new version manually.

This command is only supported on Windows. Please use administrator PowerShell.
