Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 16288 and Mobile Emulator Build 15240.

The Preview SDK and Mobile Emulator can be downloaded from developer section on Windows Insider.

Things to note:

  • This build works in conjunction with previously released SDKs and Visual Studio 2017.  You can install this SDK and still also continue to submit your apps that target Windows 10 Creators build or earlier to the Store.
  • The Windows SDK will now formally only be supported by Visual Studio 2017 and greater.

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.

API Updates and Additions

When targeting new APIs, consider writing your app to be adaptive in order to run correctly on the widest number of Windows 10 devices.

There have been no changes since build 16278 to the API surface.
