No html option RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to learn blend and have the Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 book and have looked up a few tutorials online. I'm using Visual Studio 2012 Premium. All of them say to create a new HTML (Windows Store) project. When I open a new project the only options I have are WPF and Silverlight. Also in one of the tutorials it said to right click on the project in solution explorer and click Open in Blend. When I right click a project there is no Open in Blend option. My blend version is 5.0.40218.0

    I've tried uninstalling and re-installing blend and still the same thing.

    I know nothing about Blend so any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

  • What version of Blend are you launching? Blend for VS 2012 was the first version to support the html/windows store platform.  Blend 4 can't work with those types of projects.

    The other thing to check is what OS version you are running. I don't think Blend can work with Windows Store projects on Windows 7 and below.

    I'm running on my windows 7 box. I'll install VS on my windows 8 box and see what happens. Thanks
