WindowsSDKDir variable


I have the Toradex SDK installed in Visual Studio 2015 and see the following warning:

8>------ Rebuild All started: Project: CMApplication, Configuration: Debug Toradex_CE800 ------
8>C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V140\Microsoft.CppBuild.targets(366,5): warning MSB8003: Could not find WindowsSDKDir variable from the registry.  TargetFrameworkVersion or PlatformToolset may be set to an invalid version number.

Could this be caused by a missing registry setting on my development PC?

I forgot to mention my target is WEC 2013.


We are also seeing the similar problem but we never investigated. It doesn’t affect build and debug the applications.
