In my experience with SDK 7.1 and installing the required C compiler for Matlab on Windows 10, you can install SDK 7.1 from
However, it fails to detect .NET framework 4. As a result you cannot install the required C++ compilers. You can download these manually at the following link:
Now Matlab was able to set SDK 7.1 as C compiler. Hope it works for you as well.

Did you take the time to ask your favorite internet search engine already? You will find many useful hints for the terms "install sdk 7.1 on windows 10". It would not be efficient, if I copy a list of links and I do not know, how many of them you have tried before.
Please try it and mention specifically, what have failed.

The solution in that link you gave, Walter, seems to have worked for me.

@Kris Janssen: I'm not perfect and I did not even plan to be so. Some of my answers are not useful and some are even wrong. Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm not attentive enough or misunderstood the question. Sometimes I'm irritated, when I read the same question again and miss the required details. Fortunately in such cases other members of the community give better answers and this is the way we supplement each other.
Asif Mahmud's reply to my answer contained useful details, therefore I think it was not useless, and I agree that there are better answers.

I have seen no evidence yet that it is possible to install Windows SDK 7.1 on Windows 10. The people posting in the Question about installing MATLAB in Windows 10 have indicated that there is an incompatibility between the redistributables and Windows 10 and that Microsoft will need to resolve the problem.
