Microsoft releases Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 16267 and Mobile Emulator Build 15240

Microsoft today released Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 16267 and Mobile Emulator Build 15240. These developer tools can be used with Windows 10 Insider Build 16267 or later. This SDK build includes few bug fixes and some API changes. You can read about the API changes here.

Known Issues:

  • Compilation fails on non-Windows 10 platforms. When building apps on previous platforms, you may get a build error:
    C:\program files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll:C:\program files (x860\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll(0,0): Error WMC0621: Cannot resolve ‘GenXbf.dll’ under path ‘C:\program files (x860\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16232.0\x86\genxbf.dll’.

Breaking Changes:

  • ecmangen.exe removal from the SDK: Ecmangen.exe will no longer ship with the Windows SDK. Developers who rely on ecmangen for event manifest creation are advised to install the Windows Creators Edition of the SDK to obtain the file. Developers may also use notepad or other XML editor of choice for manifest creation. A schema file is available on MSDN to aid in manifest creation, for tools that support it.
