Known Issue: Cannot create or load Universal Windows Platform projects with an error message about missing 10586 platform SDK RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is an issue with creating UWP projects and loading existing UWP projects when you have the tools and SDK installed. You could run into this if you have Visual Studio 2015, Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 or Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 and don't have Windows 10 Tools 1.3.1 installed.

    If you try to create a Windows 10 UWP project you will encounter the following dialog.

    The exact text of the message is: "The project requires a platform SDK (UAP, Version=10.0.10586.0) that is not installed."
     
    If you try to open an existing Windows 10 UWP project you will encounter this prompt.

    The exact text of the message is: "Install Universal Windows Platform Tools - You need the Universal Windows App Development Tools to develop Windows app projects."
