Microsoft Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 16278 is now available for download. The latest SDK contains bug fixes and under development changes to the API surface area. This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017. The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can also download the Visual Studio 2017 from here.

Known Issues:

  • Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms

When building apps with the minimum target platform version set to 10.0.16278.0 you get the build error:

“The program can’t start because api-ms-win-eventing-classicprovider-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.”

This will occur if the minimum target platform version is set to 10.0.16278.0. To work around this, edit your project file and change the version to a previous released SDK. For example:

1
<WindowsTargetPlatformMinVersion>10.0.10586.0</WindowsTargetPlatformMinVersion>

Breaking Changes

  • ecmangen.exe removal from the SDK: Ecmangen.exe will no longer ship with the Windows SDK. Developers who rely on ecmangen for event manifest creation are advised to install the Windows Creators Edition of the SDK to obtain the file. Developers may also use notepad or other XML editors of choice for manifest creation. A schema file is available on MSDN to aid in the manifest creation, for tools that support it.

API Updates and Additions

When targeting new APIs, consider writing your app to be adaptive in order to run correctly on the widest number of Windows 10 devices.

Microsoft recently released Windows 10 PC insider preview build 16281 for Fast Ring members.
