Visual Studio 2015 community universal app xaml no designer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm using win7 sp1 with Visual Studio 2015 community version 14.0.24720.00 update1.

    I try to develop IOT project (on rpi2) and I opened c# universal app (blank), and try to design the 'mainPage.xaml' with no success.

    In design mode I can't go to the real design mode, I have just the xaml code.

    How can I fix it?

  • According to some similar discussions, in order to show the designer for Universal applications, you have to develop them on Windows 10 (or Windows 8 for previous Universal applications), since the Designer requires some features that are not available in your environment. And the developed Universal applications will not run on Windows 7, but you probably can use Emulator to test them.
