Visual Studio: The Windows SDK version 8.1 was not found. Install the required version of Windows SDK or change the SDK version in the project

I encountered this issue when trying to compile some old code.

I tried to download the SDK, but there are no active links.

My resolution was to install Visual C++' support in Visual Studio 2015 by re-running the installer.​ Its like killing a fly with a hand-grenade (3GB install), but as least it resolved the problem.

IE11 - Critical Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'

Add this code within the body tag and all is good.

 <script type="text/javascript">
        /* IE11 Fix */
        if (typeof (UserAgentInfo) != 'undefined' && !window.addEventListener) {
            UserAgentInfo.strBrowser = 1;
        }
    </script>​
