VS 2015 Ultimate / Dirty Install / UWP -> Error with respect to Framework Version

    Question

  • Basically had my Surface resumed from SLEEP related to CompatTelRunner.exe ( telemetry still trying to find a way to completely delete this file, more trouble than it is worth in the last set of updates).  As the battery neared death it force shutdown and taking with it an app that was in Visual Studio, I was working on. It was a UWP application now I can't look at the property files of any UWP applications at all not even UWP DLLs. Throws an error about Framework Version. I am attempting a "repair" don't have much hope in it.

    Why is it that VS is so damn brittle with relation to UWP, literally a mouse could shit in any woods and it would cause UWP to break on an installation.  What is even more annoying there are NO log entries to the error.

  • Hi Morgan Vermef,

    Do you have tried create a new UWP app, whether it has the same issue?

    If this issue only occurs on the specific UWP app, I'm afraid that there has any issues on your UWP app. Please clean this solution and rebuild it again. And you also could create a new UWP app and the move the original project files to the new project and rebuild it.

    If the new UWP also has this issue, the issue mostly related to Visual Studio itself. Please try repair your Visual Studio first to check whether this issue could be fixed.

    >> Throws an error about Framework Version.

    Please share the detailed error message here, which can help us check whether there has any useful information about this issue.

    If the error message is related to .NET Framework, I suggest you make sure whether it is related to corrupted .net frameworks, please take the following steps to see if it helps:

    1. You can try run “SFC /scannow” to repair the embed .NET first, refer to:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

    2. Use .NET Framework Setup Verification Tool to verify the .NET Frameworks on your machine, you can download from here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx

    By using it, you will find the log file under %TEMP% folder, see the first 15 lines and the last 15 lines.

    If the exit code != 0, it means that your .NET installed incorrectly, please first use .NET Framework Repair Tool to repair it, http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30135

    Best Regards,
