  • Hi Glen,

    When you install the VS 2012, what components did you choose to install? Have you installed Web Developer Tools? You can check that in the About dialog.

    Thanks,

  • Thanks Xiaoying I didn't have that installed I fixed that part but i just now get the following error

    I do have EWS Managed API installed and I've tried reinstalling both the 1.2 and 2.0 version as well as doing a full reinstall of visual studio which doesn't seem to have helped this problem

    Cheers

  • Hi Glen,

    You don't need to manually install the EWS Managed API, because it's installed for you when you run Preview 2 setup through Web Platform Installer. After you reinstalled the Visual Studio, have you reinstalled the Preview 2 tools again?

    Thanks,

  • I had reinstalled Preview 2 again without any luck.  But I did find the problem I had the 64 bit version of the Managed API installed and Preview 2 wants the 32 bit version so removing the 64 bit version and allowing it to install the 32 bit version of the Managed API seems to have fixed the issue.

    Cheers
