    Windows SDK in Windows 8


    I am trying to create a c++ dll with SharpDevelop RC on a Windows 8 system. I have installed the Windows SDK, but SharpDevelop keeps giving me the same error: 

    " Please ensure that the Windows SDK is installed on your computer.

    The imported project "C:\Microsoft.Cpp.Default.props" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk. C:\Users\Me\Documents\SharpDevelop Projects\test\test\test.vcxproj" 

    I have no Idea what is meant with the "<Import> declaration". Is this a setting or system variable that I have to configure?


    After some searching I also found the following information about Windows SDK for Windows 8:

    "The Windows SDK no longer ships with a complete command-line build environment. The Windows SDK now requires a compiler and build environment to be installed separately. By removing the command-line build environment, the Windows SDK no longer ships the following components: Windows SDK Platform Toolset, Visual C++ Compilers and C Runtime (CRT), and Windows SDK Configuration Tool.". Does that mean mine is a lost cause or is there another source for these tools as they seem fairly important....


    I really hope someone can help me out here. Tomorrow I will try to do the same thing on a Windows 7 system, I hope the Windows SDK will be detected there, but if there are any settings I have to provide, please tell me where to do this.

    Many thanks in advance, Nico
