    Do you develop the UWP app in your windows machine?

    As far as I know that it would require the higher Windows Environment than the windows home version :

    >>I've just installed VS2015 Community Edition (V 14.0.24720.00 Update 1) on Windows 10 V 10.0.10240.

    As far as I know, the latest windows 10 would be the 10586 version. So the real reason is that your windows10 was not the latest version.

    In addition, the Designer has a default feedback we have found now if you update your windows, the designer just works well if you set the target to be 10240 in your project property.
