Microsoft releases Windows 10 SDK Preview build 17095

Microsoft released Windows 10 SDK Preview build 17095 today, replacing 17083, which was released almost two weeks ago. The firm has been offering new SDKs much more frequently than it used to, as the release cadence used to align with the Slow ring of the Insider Program. Now, it would seem that we get a new one shortly after each Fast ring release.

As usual, this SDK is only formally supported on Visual Studio 2017, and in fact, this SDK is actually included in the latest Visual Studio preview. Also, this build can be installed side-by-side with other SDK builds, meaning that you can use it in a production environment, as long as you're not targeting build 17095.

It's also worth noting that this will install on Insider and production builds of Windows 10. This one seems to be a bit of a lottery, as the last SDK only installed on Insider builds, the one before that didn't have that limitation, and the ones before that did.

There are also some known issues to be aware of:

  • 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\10.0.17095.0\x86\SirepClient.dll”

  • The following tools are not included with this release:





Even without a known issue that prevents deploying to a device, it wouldn't work at this point anyway. That's because this SDK has a higher build number than the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview, which is 17093. Of course, it seems that this will be resolved later on this week, when the Insider team will likely release a new build of Windows 10 for PCs.
