Visual Studio 2012 + Windows SDK 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Are there any specific steps required to make Visual Studio 2012 work with Platform SDK 8.1 on Windows Server 2012 R2 server? From what I gather from several discussions on the forums, VS2012 needs special hacks to work with Platform SDK 8.1. If this is true, is there a definitive guide about the right way to make this combination work?

    Thanks,

    Anubhav.

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Have you tried to install the Windows SDK 8.1 on your computer and it is successful? Please check this doc: Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8.1

    Go to System requirement>Support operating systems, we can find it is only support on Windows 8.1, 8,7 and Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2, not includes your OS version Windows Server 2012 R2, sorry for this inconvenience.

    To use VS 2012 with Windows SDK 8.1, please have a look at the following information that maybe helpful:

    How to build against the windows 8.1 SDK

    Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8.1 SDK RTM are now available

    Per your detail development requirement, you can also try to redirect to the responding development language like C++ forum to seek for a more professional, thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara
