  • Well the only WDK that works with VS2015 is WDK10, and you need to install the SDK also.   Check the instructions at https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/windows-driver-kit

  • but the SDK is automatically included with the WDK10 and i have already installed the WDK10?

    the Add/Remove applications manager has the following items:

    ...

    Windows driver kit

    Windows driver kit - Windows 10.0.16299.15

    Windows driver kit Tests for Windows 8.1

    ...

    Windows software developpement kit - Windows 10.0.10586.212

    Windows software developpement kit - Windows 10.0.26624

    ...

    When i double-clicking on the WDK10 installer, i get:

    The features installed on this computer are up-to-date.

    but i did not installed the SDk , i will install it right now.

  • You have to have the correct SDK for the WDK, this has messed up many people.
