  • Hi Mickael Kobol,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Please provide a screenshot and some detailed steps to help us understanding how it fails and try reproduce this problem in our side.

    Firstly, On my side, I can create an Office App on VS 2015 Enterprise.
    If you use VS 2015, you could manually download Office Developer Tools for VS or install it from Control Panel.
    Here is the download link: 

    If you are using VS 2010, as far as we know, the Office Developer Tools are installed with VS by default.
    If some assemblies are missing, the cause may be pending on VS itself installation.
    Please insert a good VS installer to repair your VS , or you could repair it via Control Panel.

    Best Regards,
