file makepri.exe not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Visual Studio 2017, I am building Class Library(Portable) which targets both .Net 4.6 and Windows Universal Application 10.0. While building the application, below error is thrown.

    Error  File 'MakePri.exe' not found. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=798187 for more information.

    I have done the following

    - Installed Latest Windows 10 SDK

    - Repaired Visual Studio 2017

    - Also in the environment variables, "WindowsSdkDir" is not available

    - The path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin" exists and this file also available

    But still there is no luck.

  • plz set WindowsSdkDir pointing to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v10.0A (LATESTVERSION in your Windows Folder)

    if there is no such variable, create a new one.
