Download the Zoom SDK

Login to the Zoom App Marketplace using your Zoom account, click the Develop option in the dropdown on the top-right corner and select Build App. Next, click the Create button and provide the required details if you haven't already created an SDK app. If you previously created an SDK app on the Marketplace, click the View here option and navigate to the Download page. Click Windows to download the Windows SDK.

Verify files

Once your download is complete, unzip your downloaded zip file and you should see the following files and folders inside the zoom-sdk-windows-master folder:

├─── bin
├─── h
├─── lib
├─── [demo] <- Examples are inside
└─── version.txt

Download the SDK package from the App Marketplace again if you have different file structures or have missing files.

How to get version number?

Inside the Zoom SDK folder that you downloaded, there is a file called version.txt. The number inside that text file is the version number of the SDK that you downloaded.

Always include the Version number when you post a question to get support on our community forum.

Load the project

Launch Visual Studio, locate the sdk_demo.vcproj file, and open it.

The DemoUI.cpp file includes a high-level application which you can reference to understand how to call the stack functions and register call backs.

The Zoom SDK runs as a DLL in the context of the calling application process.

Note: Starting from 4.6.15798.0403, all DLL files(*.dll) and EXE files(*.exe) cannot be re-signed. Please DO NOT re-sign or assign new digital signature to those files as assigning new digital signature on these files could lead to fatal errors.
