    Windows 10 SDK and target platform 8.1

    I have developed my application using Visual Studio 2015 with target platform version 8.1 on my Windows 7 desktop

    Will the executable be able to run on Windows 10 systems?

    Do I need to install the Window 10 SDK version 1809 (or the latest version) in VS 2015 and rebuild to support Windows 10?

    I do not presently have a Window 10 desktop computer.

    Many thanks..

    I guess the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 is what you need to let your program run in any other PC

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

Also note that I only provide advice and guidance via the forums - and not via private messages!
