I have exactly the same error while trying to install the WDK. I have
checked the Full Development Environment (which checks the Build Env,
Samples, Tools and Help subsections). The Debuggin Tools for Windows, Device
Simulation Frameworks, and Windows Device Testing Framework items are NOT
checked. Yet it is failing on installing the Device Simulation Frameworks?
