The Windows 7 SDK is live!

The Windows 7 SDK is live!

  • Comments 3

I just received email that the new Windows 7 SDK is now live!  Apparently it’s not on the Windows SDK download site yet, but if you click on the first link, you can download an ISO which contains the SDK. 

For the Win7 SDK, I wrote about 8 new samples in the Multimedia\Audio category, they’re described here (check the Multimedia\Audio samples.  These samples replace the old WinAudio SDK sample – basically I took the old WinAudio sample and blew it up into 8 different samples which demonstrate different aspects of rendering audio using WASAPI.

I’ll write some more about the samples tomorrow – there are some cool things in the way the samples are structured that I hope will help developers who want to understand the difference between the various WASAPI render and capture modes.

  • Hey Larry ... it seems the windows SDK setup does not work for 64 bit machines.  The error we get in the Web and ISO is that the WindowsSDK_amd64 is missing.  In another site they told us that we need to use another ISO, but that seems to be not published until now.  Could you check with the team on when they would be publishing?

  • Did you try the web download link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c17ba869-9671-4330-a63e-1fd44e0e2505&displaylang=en

    I just installed it on my 64bit machine and it seems to have worked.

  • Thanks Larry, the link works now ...!  It has passed past the place where it errored!  Appreciate your help!
