Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

You need to install SDK 8.1 as UBT asking you not 10 . SDKs in most cases are not backward compatible due to API changes in them, new code made for Win SDK 8.1 wont work with new 10 and usally vice versa. You can get 8.1 here, you need to extend the bottom:

I also think VS installer give you option to install SDK 8.1
