The Windows SDK version 8.1 was not found in VS 2015 update 3, RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    My visual studio is not recognising Windows SDK version 8.1. I have been following different workarounds I've seen online but no luck. always same error:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V140\Platforms\x64\PlatformToolsets\v140\Toolset.targets(36,5): error MSB8036: The Windows SDK version 8.1 was not found. Install the required version of Windows SDK or change the SDK version in the project property pages or by right-clicking the solution and selecting "Retarget solution".

    quite frustrated now as there is no progress with this IDE and any change takes ages...

    Thanks in advance.
