  • what is WMKMD 8.0? do you mean the WDK? please make sure you have VS2012 pro or higher installed. if you installed the WDK before you installed VS2012, go to add/remove programs, select the Win8 WDK and choose repair. this will make sure all of the VS integration pieces are registered.

  • Just to clarify, it is not possible to build drivers with VS 2012 Express? I am experiencing the same issue when trying to build the WDDM sample on VS 2012 express (I have the SDK & WDK installed). Is Pro required to build drivers now? It was possible to build drivers with VS 2010 & the 7.1 WDK. Thanks!

  • correct, not possible with 2012 express.  technically you could probably get the msbuild part to work since there are no extensions being loaded there, but none of the UI would not be there.  VS2010 and the 7.1 WDK are not an apt analogy, when building in VS2010 with the 7 wdk, you are using a vcxproj that thunks to nmake and that is it, there is no integration after that point

  • what specific problem are you seeing (the build error text itself)? did you install VS2012 or WDK8 first? if WDK8.0 first, go to add/remove programs, choose WDK 8.0 and select repair.
