Installing the Aether Engine SDK
The installer will guide you through the process of setting up the Aether Engine SDK. You must first choose between "Express installation" and "Custom installation". Express installation will install the latest versions of the components needed to develop simulations and clients, and is recommended for most cases. Custom installation will let you choose specific versions of components. Refer to Contents of the SDK for a detailed description of each component.
The Visual Studio extension is an optional component that enables debugging in Visual Studio 2019.
When installing the Visual Studio extension, you will be asked to choose a location to install to. After installation this location will contain the
.vsixfile that contains the extension, double click this to install the extension into Visual Studio.
