When the final Version of Visual Studio 2015 was released yesterday (07/20) I downloaded it, uninstalledVS2015 RC and installed the new version the same day. 🙂
Yeah – a developer’s favorite tool in the newest, shiny version!
What do you usually expect from a final build, when upgrading from a RC build?
Most likely bug fixes and stabilization of existing features and for course the possibility to create Windows 10 apps…which is nothing special since this was working fine with VS2015 RC and I already started porting my app Week View to Windows 10.
BUT: Creating new windows 10 apps does not work in the final version of Visual Studio 2015! The template for windows 10 universal apps no longer exists. Opening the existing „Week View 10“ solution did not work either – the projects no longer were loaded. 🙁
Wow, now this is a really GREAT start for windows 10 development, if you actually want to develop windows 10 apps.
What’s the matter with MS?
A service to deploy apps to a physical phone was no longer present in the windows 10 RTM build, publishing apps or submitting new apps (even for windows 8.x, windows phone 8.1) no longer works and finally creating windows 10 apps is not possible in the most recent version of THE MS developer tool „Visual Studio“.
Yes, this will be fixed hopefully very soon (please, please …) but how can this disaster happen for a large company like MS?
