Hemera Client SDK Tools installation

Hemera Client SDK Tools are not device dependent, and one installation suffices for any Hemera development and deployment you might have to do on your host. So you should follow this procedure only once, and refer to Managing Hemera Devices and Emulators from Client SDK Tools for Emulator and Device-specific installation instructions, which should be instead performed every time you want to add an Emulator or Device to your system.


Requirements are

  • One between:
    • Any Linux 64-bit or 32-bit distribution
    • Windows 7 or above
    • Any Mac OS X 64-bit release
  • VirtualBox 4.3 or above


Installations are managed from online installers. Download the SDK package for your platform and run it. You will need an internet connection on the machine where you will be installing the SDK.

You can choose whether you want to install the Qt Creator Hemera IDE or not. These components are selected by default, and are not necessary if you do not wish to use them.

Once installed, you will find the qtcreator and hsdk executables in the "bin" folder of your installation directory.

Note: Windows installations.

On Windows, there is an additional explicit requirement on OpenSSL. Due to legal reasons, OpenSSL cannot be distributed (in some countries) together with our package, as such you will need to install it separately. The best, fastest and easiest way to do so is downloading Win32 OpenSSL. Install the light Win32 package and make sure OpenSSL is installed in the system libraries.

Update and uninstallation

Updates and uninstalls are managed directly from the installers. Run the "uninstall" executable in your installation folder to manage your current installation.
