Python - Django Project - Cannot be opened - Missing project subtype

    Question

  • Hello, I just installed VS 2015 Enterprise. I have done all of the updates in Tools - Extensions. I have Python Tools for Visual Studio installed, as well as Python Tools for VS - Django. I installed Python on my computer, as well as Android SDK. I do not know what other extensions I might need. When I try to create a New -> Project, then select "Django Project", I get this error:

     The project file

    'C:whatever' cannot be opened.

    There is a missing project subtype.

    Subtype: '{5F0BE9CA-D677-4A4D-8806-6076C0FAAD37}' is unsupported by this installation.

    I have tried downloading and installing the PTVS several times (https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/features/python-vs.aspx). I cannot get VS to open a Django project. 

    I am attempting to repair the installation.

    Thanks in advance.
