    We could install the VS2015 in the windows 7 machine, but it doesn't mean that we could create/run all project types of VS2015.

    One important issue is that which kind of app you create/build in your side.

    For example, if you run the Windows 10/8.1(uwp or Store apps), as far as I know, they don't support the windows 7. So please make sure that your Environment really supports the project firstly.

    Thank you for your post.

    >>Install required version of windows SDK.

    Since your OS is Win 7, please install Windows SDK for Windows 7 from the following link:https://www.microsoft.com/en-sg/download/details.aspx?id=3138

  • Hi Lana Xu,

    I tried installing the SDK from the link you mentioned. But it didn't solve the issue.

  • Hi Pavan,

    The error information shows that you missed installing Windows SDK.

    Except this one, did you check you Windows update?

    If not, please check all of them and make sure they are all patched up.
