Visual Studio Community 2015 will not create new Universal Windows Projects.


  • Hi ,

    Thanks for your post.

    According to the error message, here are some suggestions for you:

    1. To avoid the software conflicts that occur when run your Visual Studio.

    You may also troubleshoot or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    Then try to create the UWP application again

    Please refer to the following document about How to perform a clean boot in Windows:

    2. If it is not related to your Windows OS. I suppose the cause is probably in your Visual Studio.

    Please also try running Visual Studio 2015 in Safe mode to Check whether some add-ins and extensions affect your visual studio (devenv /safemode)

    If still has the same error. I suppose there is something wrong with your Visual Studio 2015.

    In this case, I suggest you  to repair your VS first before you create UWP application.

    Or you could install the VS2015 Update1 then try it again.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
