Windows Phone SDK 7.1 in VS2015 Express.

    Question

  • Hi

    I'm having trouble installing the Windows Phone 7.1 SDk for my 2015 VS Express on Windows 7. I want to use it in conjunction with XNA. Or use XNA for desktop and X-Box actually.

    It says,"" But these do not seem to be present on my machine. Also coresponding files from the beta stage of the 7.1 SDK seem to be different.

  • Hi Skupje,

    Thank you for your update.

    As far as I know, it is better to upgrade to the Windows 10 to develop. The Windows 7 is a little old and the Windows 10 can work better with the VS 2015 or VS 2017 which includes the latest VS features and improvement.

    Sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

  • Hi Skupje,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to the incompatible error information, I found a similar issue and you can have a try with the following:

    Jeremy J Wong:

    1. Uninstall any Visual C++ 2010 Redistributables from the control panel first.
    2. Download the corresponding offline ISO image from the Windows SDK archive. This lists which ISO is which.
    3. After mounting the image, open F:\Setup\SDKSetup.exe directly.

    dougg3: Back up the registry table and temporarily downgrade the installed .NET Framework version (remember the version number) to make the VS installer think that there have a lower version of .NET Framework. After the installer, roll back the .NET Framework version number.

    If the installation of Windows SDK 7.1 still fail, you can use http://aka.ms/vscollect to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.zip under %temp% folder then upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.

    To work with Windows SDK 7.1 to develop, like Nordine Mhoumadi said, it is better to use the VS 2010 SP1, please have a look at the system requirement of Windows SDK 7.1 and it describes The Windows Phone SDK 7.1 is compatible with the final version of Visual Studio 2010 SP1.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Would it be wiser to migrate to Windows 10 and or a higher up X-Box1 SDK? Or start using Mono?
