VS2015 / Windows 10 Tool Versioning Problem? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Been fighting this one all day. I'm thinking somebody who better understands VS project templates might have a lead for me...

    I'm running Win10 Tech Preview.  It seems to be just fine.  I installed VS2015 CTP6 then Tools for Windows 10 Tech Preview.  Both from here:

    VS2015 lists "Templates > Visual C# > Store Apps > Windows UAP > BlankApplication" for a new project. If I select it, I get:

    Microsoft Visual Studio
    The vstemplate file references the wizard class 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.WinRT.TemplateWizards.PlatformVersion.Wizard', which does not exist in the assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.WinRT.TemplateWizards, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

    So... what am I missing here?  Since I'm no template developer, I can only guess at what this is talking about.  Should the template be working for me?

    I'll point out I've been uninstalling/installing/repairing VS2015 CTP6 and the Win10 Tools in various combinations, with rebooting in-between, all day hoping this would fix itself.

  • Hello kburgoyne,

    Visual Studio Setup and Installation is about install/uninstall Visual Studio. This is not the right forum for your issue.

    If want to know whether you missed anything or how to start with a store App, when you read the page you showed you will find the following forum:

    If the reason is not yours but related to Visual Studio (Actually I think if you have followed the instructions from the page you showed, you do not have problem), since VS2015 CTP 6 is still a beta version, please choose to report this issue to the following place:

    Best regards,
