Help required in downloading WDK 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could anyone help me in downloading WDK 8.1? Itseems that Microsoft supports only WDK 8.1 update.

    I am trying to build a network driver in VS2013. Currently I have installed WDK 8.1 update and related test setup.

    I am facing the following issue.

    'sal.h' No such file or directory. I have an another machine which has WDK8.1 installed it in. I could able to see lot difference When I compare the installed folders of WDK in both the machine and sal.h header is present in WDK 8.1 where as it is missing in WDK 8.1 update.

    Could anyone help me in resolving this issue or provide any pointer to download WDK 8.1?\

    Thanks.

  • Hi Vivekanandhan,

    Glad to see you again.

    As my understanding, it is similar to the VS package, for example, if the VS2013 update package 3 has been released, the official site would not provide the VS2013 update 2, since update3 has all features of update2.

    As far as I know, no WDK 8.1 now, it just has the WDK 8.1 update.

    Maybe you could post a new issue to the WDK forum, and there you would get better response:

    If we make sure that no WDK 8.1, but you just want to get it, maybe you could submit a feedback here:
