Javascript - pageControl javascript extension problem?

    Question

  • Have had problems with VS express windows folllowing a factory reset. Mostly sorted after a refresh...

    Am following the "How to", and am using this as a base for a navigation app.

    Have installed VS express windowds 2013 and hopefully the javascript extension.

    Am following http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj663505.aspx

    At step 5 - it tells me how to add new pages - but under add new item , I do not have pageControl listed as an option.

    I am wondering

    a. am I making a very very simple error (the most likely)

    b. does the pc cache think I have JS extension already loaded from refresh, when it is not there?

    I unistalled VS 2013 extensions for js, and then reinstalled to no effect.

    The references in the solution explorer shows Windows Library for javascript 2.0 - no mention of the extension library.

    I had this problem with VS 2012 and it was because of a faulty cache. I ended up doing a complete uninstall of VS.

    Can anyone tell me how to solve this please? Do I need to unistall VS completely? What do I do with local app data? Can I safely delete this please?

    Many thanks.

  • I never did sort that out - refresh, restart ...

    I have just updated to VS update 2 RC and pagecontrol has appeared. Why now, I have no idea, but I am so pleased it is back.

  • Have now uninstalled VS. I also bravely deleted localappdata visual studio related folders (I found 4).

    Reinstalled VS along with all updates offered via Tools. Still no joy. Feel really, really stuck. Would welcome any ideas. Thanks.
