As per title suggests (see screenshot)

Build is simply greyed out. Everything in play mode runs great. I reinstalled unity and checked all the boxes to do with UWP, I also installed UWP dev tools on my visual studio 17

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you running Windows 7?

Ok, well it says the issue right there at the top.

“You have to use Windows 8 or greater for this build”

I wondered about that… Thank you for the advice. I interpreted this as you will need windows 8 or higher to be able to run the app it builds out. Guess not
