  • Hi nbeck,

    Generally VS2015 SDK was used to develop certain extension projects for VS2015, I think you could get more information here:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb166441.aspx

    So I agree with Almir Vuk's suggestion, every VS version has his matched SDK, we need to install the matched version, so we could use it to create the specific project type in the VS IDE or use other functions of this SDK.

    And the VS2015 sdk is the party of the VS setup file now, it is no longer offered as a separate download. Instead, Visual Studio Extensibility Tools (SDK and templates) are included as an optional feature in Visual Studio setup.

  • Hi nbeck,

    So as Jack mentioned... you can not do that, if you want to do that please install Visual Studio 2015 and SDK or Visual Studio 2012 and it's SDK and make what you want to to that for version that you like.

    Best regards!
