Blend 2012 Rc, Not able to create a new project


  • I installed Visual Studio 2012 rc unlimited. When I opened Blend it is not letting me create a new project. Ok button is disabled all the time because nothing in Language and Version to select.  Language and Version both drop down are blank. There is no template available.

    I have installed this on Windows 7. Can any one let me know if I am missing some component or there is installation issue.

  • which version you installed? It is expected if that is express version. Because on win7 VS doesn't support metro style project.

  • I have ultimate version installed on windows 7. May be this is why it is not working. Can you advice which version i can use on win 7 to get maximum functionality available in Visual Studio RC 2012.

  • Unfortunately Blend is empty on Win7, no matter which version you installed. It will work when you upgrade OS to win8. Or you can use visual studio directly.
