I'm struggling to install the Windows SDK onto my W7 64bit machine.
I've read Can't install Windows 7 SDK but that has a different error to mine.
I can only find the option to download SDK for W7 and .NET 4 (although I already have 4.5 installed). So, I run the installer and shows it will be installed to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1
After a few minutes, it fails with the following
A problem occurred while installing selected Windows SDK components.
Installation of the "Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7" product has reported the following error: Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information.
So, I do what it says, and try to navigate to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm but this does not exist. In fact, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1 doesn't exist. I have a folder called v8.0 though.
So, my question is, does the above suggest I should be installing the SDK for Windows 8 (despite being on W7 Ultimate)?
