Hi , I download the latest WDK version from Microsoft

after installing I face the error below and can't use WDK features .

First error I face was
path to vsix 'files' is invalid
after that I use this command:

VSIXInstaller.exe /a /q “C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10”

and after this one , I face this error :

unable to determine action. you must specify a path to a vsix to install

what should I do?

    You can see the complete solution as here.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/download-the-wdk

    1. Install Visual Studio 2019
    2. Install Windows SDK 10.0.22000.0 from Visual Studio Installer
    3. Download and Install Windows 11 WDK
      This procedure will automatically start the VSIX installation.

    Note. If you can't find driver project templates in Visual Studio, the WDK Visual Studio extension didn't install properly. To resolve this, run the WDK.vsix file from this location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Vsix\VS2019\WDK.vsix.
