Microsoft has now released yet another iteration of Windows 10 SDK for developers targeting the Fall Creators Update. Build 16232 of Windows 10 SDK is now available for download and contains bug fixes and/or under development changes to the API surface area.
This release is in conjunction to the Windows 10 Insider Build 16232 and above.
Things to note:
- This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017. You can install this SDK and still also continue to submit your apps that target Windows 10 Creators build or earlier to the store.
- The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can download the Visual Studio 2017 here.
- Designer fails to render: When viewing the XAML in the Designer Window in Visual Studio, the controls fail to render. This can be resolved by using Visual Studio 2017.3 Preview.
- Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms
When building apps on previous platforms, you may get a build error:
C:\program files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll:C:\program files (x860\Windows
Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll(0,0): Error WMC0621: Cannot resolve ‘GenXbf.dll’ under path ‘C:\program files (x860\Windows
Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll’. Please install the latest version of the Windows 10 Software Development Kit.
Process ‘msbuild.exe’ exited with code ‘1’.
This will occur if the minimum target platform version is set to 10.0.16225.0. Learn more.
Since this preview SDK is a work in progress, it is recommended that you install the SDK in a test environment or a virtual machine and NOT in a production environment.
Please note, in order to take advantage of the SDK, you will require Visual Studio 2017. You can download the Visual Studio 2017 from this page.
The Preview SDK can be downloaded from developer section on Windows Insider.
