Missing "shared.vcxproj"

    Question

  • When I attempt to create a universal c++ store app I am prompted with this is error - "A problem was encountered creating subproject 'BlankAppsUniversal.Shared'. Could not find file 'C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\VCWizards\shared.vcxproj'." I looked and sure enough there was not file with that name in that location. I uninstall VS and reinstalled and still I still get this problem all other languages work for universal apps. I am totally lost. Please help if anything if someone could either solve this or evening upload that file. I was thinking about copy the file from my laptop but the hdd crashed.

  • Hi TylerJaacks,

    Thanks for posting in MSDN forum. But VC++ forum don't talk about windows store app development issue, I will move this to Tools for windows store apps forum for better support. Thanks for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Shu

  • Hi TylerJaacks,

    >>Could not find file 'C:\Programs\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\VCWizards\shared.vcxproj'

    Which version of Visual Studio are you using? For example: Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate Update4

    Check this similar thread: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-US/114b2f67-dca2-4dba-a54d-152ab4a47eca/httpcodemsdnmicrosoftcomwindowsappswindows8modernstyleappsamples?forum=winappswithnativecode

    If the version of your IDE is supporting Universal apps, please try to make a test on a new machine to exclude environment, because some of them are caused by broken IDE.
