Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be released October 17 is now available. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK (10.0.16299) is now available and can be installed via VS 2017 (15.4) or as a standalone installer. This includes DirectXMath 3.11, updated DirectX 12, and updated Direct2D/DirectWrite.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK resolves a number of conformance errors in Windows system headers enabling the use of the /permissive- switch with the latest two-phase name lookup (thus allowing you to avoid the need to use /Zc:twoPhase-).

Note: See KB4034825 for some deprecation notes for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

C/C++ Compiler: The VS 2017 (15.4) compiler contains a few servicing updates since the previous update (version 19.11.25547).

C++/WinRT: New C++/WinRT headers for this Windows 10 SDK are now available on GitHub and NuGet.

FXC: With the Windows 10 SDK (15063/16299), the FXC compiler and the D3DCompiler_47.DLL were made side-by-side. From the Developer Command Prompt for VS 2017, using FXC will use the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (14393) version. You need to explicitly select the side-by-side version if you want to use a newer one from the command-line: "%WindowsSdkBinPath%%WindowsSDKVersion%\x86\fxc.exe"
