Here's what's new in Windows 10 SDK Preview build 17069

Yesterday, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 SDK Preview, build 17069. It coincides with a Windows Server build that was also announced yesterday, build 17074, and the latest Windows 10 Fast ring build, also 17074. Unfortunately, while the download was made available yesterday, there were no release notes until now.

One of the key fixes in this SDK Preview is that you can now install it on supported versions of Windows 10. Previously, it would only install on an Insider Preview build of the OS. You can also run it side-by-side with previous SDKs, so it works in a production environment as long as you're targeting a supported Windows 10 version.

There are some other known issues to be aware of as well:

  • Cannot deploy to a device: When attempting to deploy to a mobile device, it fails with the following error: DEP0001: Unexpected Error: SmartDeviceException – Class not registered [0x80131500]

    To work around this issue:

    1. Go to Administrative Command Prompt

    2. Run REGSVR32 “\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.17071.0\x86\SirepClient.dll”

  • XAML Designer fails to load: When attempting to load the XAML designer, an Unhandled exception occurs “The XAML Designer has excited unexpectedly.

  • OleView fails to run.

As you'd expect, there is a long list of API changes, which you can check out in the announcement here. To download the new SDK Preview, you can do that here.
