Blank App (Universal) : how to have the designer?

Sun Jan 10, 2016 7:26 pm

Hello, I'm Louise, I'm french, and I want to create a blank app to my raspberry pi 2 using Visual Studio Community 2015. Unfortunately, when I open "mainpage" I don't have the designer, so I was doing some researchs and I learnt on a video that we needed to go on properties and change the target version of 10586 to 10240 but I have just one proposition and its 10586 so I can't choose 10240.. How I'm suppose to do? Have you some ideas? Its important and urgent because its a project for school, the BAC in France.

There are specific steps you need to take to get it ll hooked up. The MS url(s) and in the FAQ and on the MS development site for Windows 10 Core IoT

Hi Louise,

I know the issue you're experiencing, as I reference it in 'Learn how to create a Windows Universal App with IoT & Raspberry Pi ' (https://youtu.be/8mbtOpnYMNU?t=554)

Currently, I am unaware of a workaround for this problem (if you don't have the 10240 version of the SDK installed on your dev machine). Therefore, I will ask around and get back to you.

Furthermore, I've also posted a link to your post on the Raspberry Pi forums (
viewtopic.php?f=105&t=132138&sid=7d72f8 ... e87908b69b) to the Windows IoT slack group.

Lastly Louise, if a copy of my source code from this video (including the web app & azure webjob) would help you with your project let me know and ill get it up on github ASAP!

Chris

"(if you don't have the 10240 version of the SDK installed on your dev machine). "

Chris: That should be more up to date than 10240 shouldn't it? The latest MS requirements are now 10586 all round I think

Agreed 10240 is the previous build, I updated before Sydney .Net usergroup (which was record in the video) and discovered this annoying surprise when I was practicing my talk with 10586. Luckily for me it hadn't uninstalled 10240.

Chris: I just skipped though the video. Sorry.

Can you detail the steps required under the setup you had and how to recover. I 'know' the MS steps work if done from scratch but that is always a 'Hail Mary' pass.

I'll put it in the FAQ if we can frame it right.
