VS2013 Windows 8.0 SDK

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have a custom extension SDK for Windows 8.0, my SDK is C++ native, the SDK has a custom property sheet in DesignTime\CommonConfiguration\Neutral\Common.props

    When i use VS 2012 and i add a reference to my SDK the property sheet is added to all project configurations.

    When i use VS 2013, with an 8.0 project, i can add the SDK but the property sheet is not being added to the project configurations.

    If i use VS 2013 with an 8.1 project the property sheet is added to all project configurations.

    Is this expected, why isn't the property sheet added from VS 2013 with an app that targets 8.0?

    My SDK doesn't work with 8.1 because it is linked with vc110 runtime, how can i avoid it being listed for 8.1 applications?

  • Hi pepone,

    Sorry for a last response, the item is list when the VS consider they should be listed. I don't think there would be any way that can avoid a SDK being listed while build 8.1 apps.

    Another question, while you are using VS 2013 for a win8.0 app, what your "Platform Toolset" is? I suppose a v110 is required here.

  • Hi,

    I think your issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    Could you tell us what you are programing for? Windows Desktop application or Windows Store app? I will check whether this thread can be moved to a proper forum.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    Since your customer SDK is for Windows Store App, I think that a Windows Store App forum is a better place for your issue. I am moving this thread to Tools for Windows Store apps forum for better response.

    Thanks,

  • May I know what version of VS2013 you are using now?

    Take a look at the sticky post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c68cd3d3-c6a6-42c0-b13e-62b79da5c85d/getting-started-what-versions-of-visual-studio-and-windows-do-i-need-to-write-an-app-for-windows?forum=winappswithcsharp

    Non-express versions of Visual Studio 2013 can update Windows 8 apps, but cannot create new ones. You are using your own win8 SDK within VS 2013 failed, I guess the problem is the version of VS. Maybe you could try with an Express version of VS2013.

  • I using Visual Studio Profesional 2013.

    The surprising thing was that i can add the SDK, but it doesn't add the property sheets so my build fails.

    Is there a way to avoid an 8.0 SDK to being listed in the extensions SDKs when you build 8.1 apps?
