    Question

  • When I try running the "Background Application (IoT)" template I get a message "C:/Program Files (86)\microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio-Uwp\2.2\Microsoft.PythonTools.Uwp.targets" can not be found. I look and that file is on the F: Disk not the C: Disk. How can I change the path or which is the easies way to fix this issue?

  • Hi Ppython Tools,

    Glad to know that you have resolved this issue, and thanks for sharing your solution here. And I have one question that if you delete the all files under "F:/Program Files (86)\microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio-Uwp\2.2\Microsoft.PythonTools.Uwp.targets", whether Visual Studio works fine. If it works fine, I think you could try to move all file of Python Tools for Visual Studio to C disk and delete all files on Python Tools for under F disk. But please back-up all deleted file, if this method doesn’t work that we could restore these files.

    In addition, I installed Python Tools from VS, and Python Tools are existing in “C:/Program Files (86)\microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\”. Please refer to the following screenshot.

    You could refer to the above screenshot and copy all necessary folders from F disk to C disk.

    Sincerely,

    Oscar

  • Hi,

    Would you please share me where you installed Python Tools and which version of VS you have used? In my side VS2015 Enterprise, I have installed Python Tools through Visual Studio and I could create a Background Application(loT) without any problems.

    I suggest you could install Python Tools via Visual Studio, please refer to the following steps:

    click start->control panel-> programs and features->right-click Microsoft Visual Studio VS 2015->change -> Modify

    Please refer to the following screenshot, enable the option Python Tools for Visual Studio (June 2016).

    Sincerely,

    Oscar

  • Oscarw:

    Thanks for the help, but I was looking for an easy way to fix this problem.

    I did fix the issue, but not sure if it was the best way. What I did is that I copy "F:/Program Files (86)\microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio-Uwp\2.2\Microsoft.PythonTools.Uwp.targets" to "C:/Program Files (86)\microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio-Uwp\2.2\Microsoft.PythonTools.Uwp.targets". If there is a better way to fix this issue please reply, but for now I stuck with the same data on two disk drives.

    Thanks Again,

    Joe
