FAQ: Can ArcGIS Engine Runtime applications run on mobile devices?

Question

Can ArcGIS Engine Runtime applications run on mobile devices?

Answer

No. ArcGIS Engine Runtime applications, which are built with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK and a redistributable ArcGIS Engine Runtime, can only be run on ArcGIS for Desktop.

To create a custom built application for mobile devices, use the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for mobile devices.

Note:
ArcGIS Engine Runtime is the platform on which ArcGIS for Desktop is built; this allows users of ArcGIS for Desktop applications to execute custom applications based on ArcGIS Engine.
