but, I couldn’t download and install window SDK 7.1.

There is a message that
"this feature is disabled because required .net 4 framework is not installed"

as the result

 ".NET Development" cannot be selected. when i proceed without selecting it, "Installation Failed" will be appeared. Have you ever solved a problem like this?

I deleted and reinstalled the visual studio and the problem was solved. I used visual studio 2022 in a window 10 environment, and when I followed this link, the compilation was completed successfully.

I knew I didn't have to install the .net4 framework.
