Where is the JavaScript > Windows Store template?

    Question

  • I'm running Windows 8.1

    In the Dev Center tutorial it states...

    "Launch Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows. 

    The Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows start screen appears. 

    (Going forward, we refer to Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows as just "Visual Studio".)

    • From the File menu select New Project.

      The New Project dialog appears. The left pane of the dialog lets you pick the type of templates to display.

    • In the left pane, expand Installed, then expand  Templates, then  expand JavaScript and select the  Windows Store template type. The dialog's center pane displays a list of project templates for JavaScript."

    • But, I don't see any JavaScript template, only Visual Basic, Visual C# etc.

    • Am I missing something?

  • I uninstalled Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop

    and installed Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows from the link in the tutorial.

    Now I have the JavaScript Template...thanks.

    Notice that the new installation's name does not include the word "desktop".

  • I had the same issue with Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows : the Javascript templates were missing from the Installed section in the New Project dialog.

    I made a Change/Repair of Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows from the Control Panel.

    Now I see the JavaScript templates appearing in the Installed section!

  • Your issue wasn't quite the same as mine...I had installed the wrong software...the desktop version!
