Create and Build Windows 10 application using Command Line RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    All my experience of development by using Visual Studio only. Do we have any provision to create and build a Windows 10 UWP application from Command Line without Visual Studio installed on Machine?

    I have searched on the web and didn't found anything that works.

    Please help.

  • Hi,

    As I know you could try to use the command to build the existing project but you could not create a UWP app just using command line without Visual Studio

    Best regards,
