No Cross Platform in Options Dialog Box in VS2015 Community?

    Question

  • So I had been following this tutorial on how to set up a C++ cross platform environment in Visual Studio Community. I can't install it through the installer because it always get stuck and never progresses installing so I decided to install it manually. However, I can't see any "Cross Platform" on the left side tab. I have installed all the requirements: Java SE, Android SDK, Android NDK, etc. May I ask why and is there anything in the tutorial not shown? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I check the log you provided and find the following error message:

    This error code indicates that the Android_V2++MDDCPlusPlus_AndroidV1 package doesn't download well,
    The Pipe {f03a4e00-70e7-414e-b876-3a2b2c6c4100} is stuck during the installation.

    So please go to Control Panel >Programs >Programs and Features , select Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 and click on 'Modify' , check the following 3rd Party sdk are already installed.

    If not ,you may check them and apply, remember to disable the AV software and the firewall.

    Thanks for your post.

    If you want to do C ++ cross platform development. You need to insatll the the C++ cross platform componments first.

    You could modify your Visual Studio and isntall the

    After installation, you will find the Cross platform option

  • This had been my problem that's why I've been trying to manually install it. This has been two hours already and there is still no progress :/ I think installers shouldn't take that long but this one is? Is there any workaround for this? I've installed every requirements listed on the above link I mentioned before. Thank you

    For the installation taking long time, take a look at task manager and see if you have any activities specially in the Disk (Windows 8, 10). If you don't have SSD it might take some time. Also, check if your disk activity is 0% and staying that way. Then your HDD might be faulty.

    Another thing to remember is that Android Emulators installation requires Hyper-V to be disabled. Otherwise, it will result in an error and will not install. It might be that issue as well. 

    If it took really long and you don't see any activities, feel free to cancel installation, restart and try again!

    Let me know if this helped.

  • So yeah, I checked 'em. I have HDD, though secondaryinstaller.exe(I followed this) and Crystal Disk Info reported that I have an HDD health status of GOOD. So I think I'm running out of options and have to resort to C#(lol) for Xamarin. I'm hoping that maybe this log file can help my issue here :/ ... thanks for all the help :)
