[WPSL]How do I make a Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Got VS Enterprise 2015, started making a Windows Phone 8.1 app (XAML) but I've found out that there is more functionality available if I create a Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight app. I've had a look under File -> New Project but I cannot find anything about Silverlight at all. The instructions here don't seem to work in VS 2015 https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn642081(v=vs.105).aspx maybe it's because I'm not trying to go from Phone 8 to 8.1, but Phone 8.1 to Phone 8.1 Silverlight.

    How do I start creating a Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight app? Thanks.
