Installing Remoting SDK for Use in Xcode

There are two ways to install Remoting SDK on your Mac so that it can be used from within Xcode.

The "Remoting SDK for Cocoa" download will include all the necessary files. Simply mount the .dmg and copy its content to a folder of your choosing, for example "~/Developer/Remoting SDK".

The "Data Abstract for Cocoa download will also include the respective Remoting SDK libraries and tools as well, so if you use Data Abstract, you don't need to download both.

Supported Versions

Remoting SDK has been tested with Xcode 6 and later. We recommend staying with the latest version of Xcode. For Swift, Remoting SDK focuses on supporting Swift 2.0 and later, but will probably also work well with previous versions (maybe with minor modifications needed to the generated code).


If you installed the trial version, the trial binaries will be fully functional without technical limitations, but display a trial message when your apps are run. They are also not licensed for distribution. IDE functionality (such as working with .remoteRODL files) will disable after the 30-day trial period is over.

Full Version

Installing the full version of Remoting SDK (or Data Abstract, which includes the SDK) is easy. Simply download the installer from the licensed downloads page and run it. You can update from trial to full version, and update to newer versions, without needing to uninstall.

If you don't have a full license for Remoting SDK yet, you can purchase one here.
Or purchase Data Abstract here.
