Need to set the Windows Target Platform every time opening a project?


It seems I need to set the Windows Target Platform to 10.0.17134.0 every time I open a project manually or it gives errors. Is this normal? Isn’t there some way to set it globally so it won’t keep doing this?



No, there’s not a way to set the global default. We chose 10.0.16299.0 as the default as this is installed with VS2017 - if you don’t have it installed you can get it by running the Visual Studio Installer and then selecting “Modify” under the VS2017 options, then tick “Windows 10 SDK (10.0.16299.0)” under the “Individual Components” section.
