Windows 10 SDK (10.0.18362.0) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Shouldn't I be offered the Windows 10 SDK for 1903 in the VS Installer?

    I would like to update the TargetPlatformVersion and use new features from 1903 if necessary. Since I support an app for PC and Phone/ARM, I have to debug the phone via USB. That's why I didn't install VS 2019.

    Best Regards,
    Heiko

    No, the versions of the Windows SDK you are offered is tied to the Visual Studio version, not the Windows version. This SDK has started being offered in 2019, but I doubt it will be added to the 2017 installer now since Microsoft rarely do a major update to a Visual Studio version after the next version has shipped.

    If you use the link that Ken Tucker has provided and download the standalone SDK from there, if you install this version then Visual Studio 2017 will detect this and use it. You could also install 2019 side by side too.

I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.

  • Hi Heiko,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Both of Ken and Darran are right, we can install it from this web site, by selecting the download link, or you can by select this version of the Windows 10 SDK (10.0.18362.0) in the Visual Studio 2019 Installer optional components.

    I tried to install this SDK through the VS 2019 installer and open VS 2017 to create a new UWP solution with the target version 1903, it works as below:
