  • update VS 2015

    1-update your VS 2013 SP5
    2-save project

    3-update the extensions

    You can try change the manifest file (see below steps). This can't guarantee that the extension will work properly, I changed some of extensions I use and it works for me.
    a). Rename the .VSIX extension to .ZIP
    b). Extract the contents of the archive and open the .vsixmanifest contained inside with a text editor like notepad
    c). Locate the <SupportedProducts> XML element and add version 14.0. i.e:
       <SupportedProducts>
         <VisualStudio Version="13.0">
           <Edition>VSLS</Edition>
         </VisualStudio>
         <VisualStudio Version="14.0">
           <Edition>VSLS</Edition>
         </VisualStudio>
       </SupportedProducts>
    d). Save the .vsixmanifest, zip up the contents again, and rename the archive with the .vsix extension



    4-Install extensions
    e). Double-click the VSIX to install
    5-Clean BIN / DATA folder
    6-open the project in VS 2015

    7-BUILD AND GO !!!

    it's working.

    but we still need news on the future of LS

    I'm working with LS 4 years and have developed many projects. must continue

    I think we need an update to ASP.NET MVC.

    the ASP.NET MVC this great, but the LS is a very complete and easy to use tool. with validation fields and creating very friendly screens not developers, creating a powerful tool for experienced developers like me. I need worry only with specific details and not with any design.

    help us to follow MS.

    tks

  • Hi, bascode!

    I had endless build after converted my LS project from VS 2013 to 2015. Build cancellation reported "The data necessary to complete this operation is not yet available (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000000A)". Clean and Rebuild did not help.

    But after I've done step 5 Clean BIN(s) (not DATA) folder project opened in VS 2015 was build successfully!

    Many Many TNХ!

    Kind regards,
    Sergey
