SDK and WDK for 19042+

Hello, i'm starting on driver development with the latest version of visual studio 2019 (and also right now i'm giving a try to 2022 to see if my issue is solved).

I've just want to try debugging tools for windows - kernel debugger debugging option which allows to deploy on a remote computer the driver and test it using windbg internally (as far as i understood).

The problem is that seeing some posts here i'm having the same issue:

Installing driver test framework is failing and the solution provided is to make use of an WDK that does match the operating system.

My Host and Guest are both windows 10 21H2 (19044.1645), however there is no SDK nor WDK updated to a version above 19041. How i'm supouse to do it? I'm giving a try to visual sutdio 2022 and the preview versions of SDK and WDK but i have little faith since the versions are for Windows 11 which obiousle does not match the SO version i'm using.

How can i solve it?

    You have to use these things to develop all Windows Drivers including Windows 11. Others are not supported.

    • Visual Studio 2019
    • Windows 11 SDK (22000.1)
    • Windows 11 WDK

    See below.

    Thank you for your help. I can now add a driver package in vs2019. I have both wdk and sdk.
    Let me now figure out how to sign it correctly hoping it will work correctly. I appreciate your help.
