Quick start for console application

This guide shows how to start working with DotNetBrowser and embed it in a simple console application.

Before you begin make sure that your system meets software and hardware requirements.

1. Install DotNetBrowser templates

Open the Terminal or Command Line prompt, and install DotNetBrowser templates if not installed yet:

dotnet new install DotNetBrowser.Templates

For .NET 6.0, use a slightly different command:

dotnet new --install DotNetBrowser.Templates

After installation, the template projects will be available in both .NET CLI and Visual Studio.

2. Get trial license

To get a free 30-day trial license, fill in the web form and click the GET MY FREE TRIAL button. You will receive an email with the license key.

3. Create a .NET console application with DotNetBrowser

Create a new application:

dotnet new -o Example.Console -li <your_license_key>
dotnet new -o Example.Console -lang VisualBasic -li <license_key>

The project will be created in the folder Example.Console.

By default, this project will target net7.0. Use -f option to specify net6.0 instead.

4. Run the application

To launch application, use:

cd Example.Console
dotnet run
