Hello!

The documentation in ArcGIS Pro states that it is possible to select an option for the MPKX map package that will make it accessible to the ArcGIS Runtime (.NET). However, I have not been able to find any reference in the ArcGIS Runtime for .NET help that identifies the class that supports opening up this package type. 

Package Map—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

Is this packaged file type truly supported by ArcGIS Runtime for .NET? And if so, how do I open it?

Thanks!

Hi,

In the upcoming v100.3 release we are planning to add support for .mpkx files when used in conjunction with the ArcGIS Runtime Local Server - for an explanation of how this works in the current v100.2 release with .mpk files from ArcMap see Local Server—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers.

To work with packages from ArcGIS Pro directly in ArcGIS Runtime you should look at the Mobile Map Package (.mmpk) see: 

Mobile map package—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop

Maps (2D)—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers

Create an offline map—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers

Cheers
