Microsoft announced yesterday that the Windows 10 Creators Update SDK is officially available for developers to download. The new release includes quite a number of new features, all of which the company hopes will enable Windows developers to build amazing apps that take advantage of new platform capabilities.
To get started with the install, developers need to first install the Creators Update and then use Visual Studio 2017 version 15.1 to get the SDK. To install the Creators Update, developers can go to the software download site and select “Update Now" and then run the executable program. Once updated, developers should run the Visual Studio Installer, check off “Universal Windows Platform development” under Workloads and then click on “Update” / “Install.” If Visual Studio is not installed, developers can head over to Windows Dev Center’s download area select the desired edition of Visual Studio, run the installer, select “Universal Windows Platform development” under Workloads, and then Click “Install.”
Today is a great day for all Windows developers to get the SDK and start building amazing apps that take advantage of new platform capabilities to deliver experiences that you and your users will love. We are working hard to innovate in Windows and to bring the power of those innovations to Windows developers and users. We released Windows 10 Anniversary Update just eight months ago, and we’ve already seen that over 80% of Windows 10 PCs are running Anniversary Update (version 1607) or later.
