Where does SDK get installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have run both the sdksetup.exe and the windows_software_development_kit-86_en-us.msi... they both complete without error... but I have no idea where it is putting the SDK files... nothing in normal places.  Anyone know where it installs?

  • It installed on the normal place for me. Have you tried a reinstall?

  • OK. What is normal place?  I tried on another machine and see nothing either after installation!

    The place I am expecting to see it is:  c:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\

    And I expected an v8.0 folder in there.

  • Thanks!  Any new docs regarding Windows 8 ribbon?  I don't see anything in the SDK.

  • There are no released documents on the new APIs for Windows 8 other than the new WinRT APIs.  The focus for the Developer Preview was Metro Style application development.
