Messed up WDK installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently purchased a new computer and try to port my Visual Studio from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Installing Visual Studio 2015 Community was no problem at all. The newest version of the WDK also installed without errors. When I create a new driver project(whether i choose KMDF or UMDF) the first odd thing is that the include files cannot be found. Ok, so i manually added the include paths to the project. When I try to compile the project i get the error message that WDK version 8.1 was not installed and that i should install this version. Ok it makes sense because i don't have version 8.1 installed, but i can't change the target platform settings in the project settings to anything other then 8.1.

    I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the WDK but nothing changed.

    I hope anybody can help with my problem..

  • Is WDK 10 installed? What all versions are displayed in target platforms?

  • Yes, WDK 10.0.10586.0 is installed and I didn't get any errors during installation.

    Target platforms shows only 8.1 and nothing else which is strange, because version 10 is clearly installed.
