  • Hi Prapthi, Can you tell me what options you see under Office/SharePoint when you expand the node in the New Project dialog?

  • Hi Prapthi, thanks for reporting this issue.

    Would you please check whether "Microsoft SharePoint Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012 - Preview - ENU" shows in control panel or not?

    If not, would you please uninstall this tool and Download the tools again to try install? We feel sorry for you get into the trouble. We are hope to indentify the root cause and unblock you as soon as possiable.

  • Hi Prapthi,

    From you screenshot it seems one of the dependent product failed to install "Sharepoint client components".

    Could you share what you see in the logs under

    %localappdata%\microsoft\web platform installer\logs\install\

    This will help us in understanding the root cause.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Prapthi,

    From log, it seems due to SharePoint Remote SDK install failed on your x86 machine.

    So would you please try to install sharepointclientcomponents_x86.msi directly through following url? Hopefully it could unblock installation issue asap. If you still meet issues when directly install sharepointclientcomponents_x86.msi, please let us know.

  • Hi Prapthi, sorry you are still having problems - what did you see when you ran sharepointclientcomponents_x86.msi directly? Did you get the same messages in the log?

    Cheers...pc
