The April 2014 Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) enables the Visual Studio Graphics Debugging and Graphics Frame Analysis features for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. However, Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 RTM or Update 1 version is incompatible with this Windows SDK, these features require Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 or the later Update.


Assume that you have the April 2014 or the later Windows SDK installed on your computer. When you use graphics debugging features in Visual Studio 2013 or Visual Studio 2013 Update 1, you may encounter undefined behavior.


This issue occurs because these features require Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 or the later Update.


To resolve this issue, install the Visual Studio 2013 Update 2.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
