Install Latest SDK Distribution¶
This section will guide you through the installation process of the latest SDK Distribution
24.01 using the step-by-step executable installer.
The SDK Distribution
24.01 requires a JDK 11 and thus can only work with an Architecture 7.17.0 or higher.
In all other cases, please jump to Install SDK Distribution 21.11 section.
See also the System Requirements page for more information on the list of supported environments.
Launching the SDK Distribution installer requires administrator privileges and a JDK 11 installed by default on your workstation. If you don’t have one of them or if you do not want to modify your default settings, please jump to Install Portable SDK Distribution section.
Download SDK Distribution¶
Download the SDK Distribution

22.06, the SDK Distribution installer requires a JDK 11 installed by default on your workstation.
If you don’t have any JDK installed, see the Get JDK section.
Check the default Java version by running the following command in a new terminal:
