WDK 10 on 2012R2 build server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to setup VS2015 and WDK10 on our 2012R2 Build server.

    I have a driver project which compiles well on a Win10/VS2015/WDK10.

    On the 2012R2 platform, the project does not build. Relevant log line:

         1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\build\WindowsDriver.common.targets(180,5): error : An SDK corresponding to WDK version '8.1' was not found. Please install the SDK before building.

    Interstingly, some project settings appear changed between 2012R2 and Win10:

    "General/Targetplatform" is "Windows" instead of "Windows10"

    "General/target platform version" is tied to "8.1", while on Windows10 several types can be choosen.

    On the other hand, "Driver Settings" are the same on 2012r2 and Win10:

    "Target OS Version" is "Windows7, "Target platform" is "Desktop"

    Maybe here is the problem:

    I've read the requirement "install all other VS versions before installing VS2015". But this would mean to setup an separate build server just for the driver, so I ignored this advice.


    Thanks for reading

  • Hi,

    I solved that issue, but do not exactly know how.

    Under 2012R2 I have nowy the same sttings now as on Win10, compiling is OK.

    Perhaps I forgot to install the SDK10 (sdksetup.exe, or option in VS2105 install dialog).
