Visual Studio "15" Preview 3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Visual Studio website indicates that Visual Studio "15" Preview 3 now includes Office Developer Tools with the latest features and updates.  See https://www.visualstudio.com/news/releasenotes/vs15-relnotes#officedev posted on July 7, 2016.  Does anyone know if LightSwitch HTML projects can be created in Visual Studio "15" Preview 3?  If so, has anyone tried to open a VS2013 or VS2015 LightSwitch HTML project in Visual Studio "15" Preview 3?  Many Thanks!

  • Nope.

    Only Office Addins, Templates etc.

    It looks like LightSwitch has been removed. This does not mean that it's not going to appear somewhere else as there has been a lot of restructuring (Wishful thinking :( ).

    Who knows what is going on? I tried to address it with my last issue but the silence was deafening.

    ...

    At this point it is safe to say that there is no longer a LightSwitch team working on LightSwitch.

    Only Visual Studio maintenance programmers working on fixing bugs.

    This is why I upgraded all my LightSwitch applications to Visual Studio 2015 so that I can continue to get support into 2020.

    For new applications I use this method: A OData 4 / AngularJs / TypeScript Sample Application.

  • Can you still download and install Office Developer Tools to get the LightSwitch templates on VS2015?

    Currently, we can use Lightswitch in VS 2015 with Microsoft office developer tools.

    Since this version of Visual Studio still a Preview version, and I don't get any information about Visual Studio will not support LightSwitch application.

  • To All,

    Visual Studio "15" Preview 4 was issued two days ago (https://www.visualstudio.com/news/releasenotes/vs15-relnotes#officedev).

    I assume the LightSwitch HTML template is still absent in this release.  Has anyone tried to create a new LightSwitch HTML project in Preview 4?

    Thanks,

  • Visual Studio "15" Preview 4

    Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio

    This preview release includes Office Developer Tools with the latest features and updates, as follows:

    • New Office Add-in templates specific to Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
    • Support for new Office Add-in features such as add-in commands, Fabric UI, and a new version of Office.js.
    • New starter code in the templates that showcase how to get started with new Office Add-in features.
    • Support for SharePoint 2016 in SharePoint solutions and add-in templates.

    Certainly does not sound like it. This version causes some conflicts with Visual Studio 2015, does not support SDK and VSIX extensions. No way I am trying this version, next preview due in September/October I guess.
