Cannot start a new ASP.NET Project in Visual Studio 2013 or 2015


  • I can't start a new ASP.NET project with any templates. I have in the past but not I can't. My steps are:

    1. Visual Studio

    2. New Project

    3. ASP.NET Web Application (.NET Framework)  -> (or any ASP.NET Templates ie. Core Web Application etc)

    4. Choosing any of the templates, including Empty, results in error:

    Method not found: 'System.Threading.Tasks.Task'1<Bolean> Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.Internal.Contracts.IAzureResourceCreationControl.EnsureCreationParamsAsync(Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.ProjectCreation.Contracts.IProjectCreationInteractions, System.Threading.CancellationToken)'.

    A message box pops up with that error and when I click Ok, or Cancel Visual Studio hangs a moment and then crashes.  I have tried many times and checked for all updates and packages.  I can't figure this out.

    Love, praise, and worship God :)
