Default Windows Target Platform for JUCE projects

Hi all,

would you consider changing the default Windows Target Platform to 8.1. for all demo and example projects? (Especially Projucer)

We are building the Projucer on our Jenkins, so we are always using the target platform provided from the official Repo. Every once in a while we have to install a new SDK on the build server just for building the Projucer.


I don’t think that this would be a good idea as the 8.1 SDK isn’t installed with the default VS2017 installation options. This means that most people would not have it installed and would therefore get an error when trying to build JUCE projects.

The default target platform for the VS2017 exporter is 10.0.16299.0 and has been for some time as this is the fall creators update SDK so is probably going to be installed on most user’s machines.
