Microsoft has this week announced the availability and roll-out of the latest Windows 10 SDK in the form of the Preview Build 17035 which is now available to download. The Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 17035 has been released to be used in conjunction with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17035 or greater explains Microsoft. Microsoft explains the Preview SDK Build 17035 contains bug fixes and under development changes to the API surface area as well as :
Things to note in Build 17035:
– This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017. You can install this SDK and still also continue to submit your apps that target Windows 10 Creators build or earlier to the store.
– The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can download the Visual Studio 2017 here.
Known Issues in Build 17035:
– Installation on an operating system that is not a Windows 10 Insider Preview build is not supported and may fail.
What’s New in Build 17035:
– C++/WinRT Now Available:
– The C++/WinRT headers and cppwinrt compiler (cppwinrt.exe) are now included in the Windows SDK. The compiler comes in handy if you need to consume a third-party WinRT component or if you need to author your own WinRT components with C++/WinRT. The easiest way to get working with it after installing the Windows Insider Preview SDK is to start the Visual Studio Developer Command Prompt and run the compiler in that environment. Authoring support is currently experimental and subject to change. Stay tuned as we will publish more detailed instructions on how to use the compiler in the coming week. The ModernCPP blog has a deeper dive into the CppWinRT compiler.
