Cannot create ANY new project at all in the RC Blend RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just downloaded Visual Studio Ultimate with Blend.

    In trying to create a new project, I find NO ability to create a new project-of any type. I can select a path, but that is it.

    I'm in Windows 7, and require NOT to build Metro apps at all. Just WPF. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? Please.

  • Hi SoulFireMage,

    This version of Blend targets Metro style Windows 8 apps authored in XAML and HTML.  It must be installed on Windows 8 Release Preview.

    For WPF authoring you should use Blend 4.

  • You can also use the VS 2012 RC to build WPF/SL apps on Windows 7.
