  • Hi Joao,

    According to the Install Instructions for Windows Phone 8.0 SDK, it seems just can install on Visual Studio 2012.

    Choose the language version you want to install and click the Download button for the WPexpress_full.exe file. Follow the instructions to install the SDK. Note that each localized version of Windows Phone SDK 8.0 is designed to function with the corresponding localized operating system and localized version of Visual Studio 2012.

    And I try installed the Windows Phone 8.0 SDK from above link, it will install Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Phone since my computer just installed Visual Studio 2015.

    So I suggest you install higher version of Windows Phone SDK for your Visual Studio 2015.

    Best Regards,
