RTReader is a free, ready-to-use app built using ArcGIS Runtime .NET 10.2.7
and the Runtime Extensibility Framework. It is designed to duplicate much
of the functionality, look, and feel of ArcReader. Users already familiar
with ArcReader should have little difficulty using it.
How to Create a Map
RTReader expects a map in the form of Runtime content. A Runtime
content folder will contain a "data" subfolder, a "basemap" subfolder,
or both. The "data" subfolder will contain a Runtime geodatabase (e.g.
"mydata.geodatabase"). The "basemap" subfolder will contain a tile
cache or tile package named "Basemap" (or "Basemap.tpk").
To create out-of-box Runtime content in ArcMap or ArcCatalog, see these
You can also create custom Runtime content in a variety of other ways.
For more information, see the presentation "The Road to Runtime" at the
ArcGIS Runtime page.
How to Open a Map Manually

How to Open a Map Automatically
Edit BasicReader.xml in the RTReader\Config folder, changing the
following line to remove the comment marks and set the desired path:
<!--<Map Type="RuntimeContent" Path="C:\apps\Data\Runtime\RuntimeContentTest" />-->
<Map Type="RuntimeContent" Path="C:\MyPath\MyRuntimeContent" />
RTReader supports configuration to change its appearance and
functionality. By default, RTReader uses the "BasicReader"
configuration. To select a particular configuration file that's in the
Config folder, create a shortcut to RTReader and add the name of the
configuration file (no .xml extension) to the target:
