The Universal Application Platform (Also known as Universal Windows Platform) is a platform for writing applications that run on various Windows devices. The package uses this SDK to deal with .appx bundles as well as to properly configure the build steps.

The SDK is usually installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Platforms\UAP\<version> where <version> is the version of the platform installation. It contains the necessary information about a given target platform and how applications should be built for it.

You can retrieve an SDK configuration using the task:

# gets an SDK without a requested version number
# gets the SDK with the 10.0.18362.0 version

The result of the task can be passed to other build tasks that work with SDKs.
