Software Development Kit CL-SDK

Preparations for use

System requirements for the latest version of Software Development Kit CL-SDK are listed after Preparations for use.

The CL-SDK can be used by just copying the files and folder structure from the downloaded .zip file to a folder on your computer. There is no need to run an installation program.
In the same way, removing the CL-SDK from your computer can be performed by simply deleting the folder containing the CL-SDK files.

  1. Save the download file (clsdk_win130_all.zip) to a folder on your computer.
  2. Extract the files in the .zip file to a folder on your computer, maintaining the folder structure of the .zip

For information on using the CL-SDK to write your own software, please refer to the pdf of the CL-SDK Reference Manual included in the Manual subfolder of the extracted files.
