Error_1_error MSB3774: Could not find SDK "Microsoft.VCLibs, Version=11.0". RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using 8.1, trying to build a custom media player. I got over tens of thousands of code, but only got one error, the entitled mention. Is this SDK, related to the ATT SDK, if so, should I uninstalled. If not, do it re-install?   I actually have the file in my folders, and walked the pathogen, but when I insert the file, nothing happens as if the computer can't see it. is this file even necessary for what I'm building, (media player). Thanks!

  • Which version of Visual Studio are you using and are you targeting Windows Store apps on Windows 8 or Windows Store apps on Windows 8.1? VCLibs 11.0 suggests targeting Windows Store apps on Windows 8 with VS 2012.

    You shouldn't need to do anything explicit for the VCLibs in a C++/Cx app. You may need to repair the install. I'm not sure what the ATT SDK you mention is.
