Hardware requirements

HiDPI monitors

DotNetBrowser recognizes the device scale factor that is used in the environments with HiDPI displays and renders HTML content with the respect to that scale factor.

The WPF and WinForms BrowserView controls are compatible with different DPI awareness modes. DotNetBrowser gets the DPI awareness settings from the application configuration where it is used and configures Chromium processes to use the same DPI awareness mode.

DotNetBrowser supports high DPI only if your .NET desktop application supports it.

These MSDN articles describe how to create DPI-aware .NET desktop applications:


Support of the ARM64 architecture for Windows, Linux, and macOS is on our Roadmap.


DotNetBrowser does not support mobile devices with iOS and Android.

Other Environments

You can try running DotNetBrowser on other platforms or versions not listed here, but we do not guarantee that all DotNetBrowser functionality will work properly there.

DotNetBrowser cannot be used in the environments that prevent the User32/GDI32 APIs from being called, such as Azure App Services or Azure Functions. With these limitations, it is not possible to launch the Chromium engine.
