    After upgrading from VS2015 preview to VS2015 RTM my Appbuilder extension stopped working. Should the latest version of the extension work with the final release of VS2015?

    Hello lindsoe,

    Thank you for contacting us about the issue. We have already investigated the faulty behavior and I am happy to say that our development team found a solution for it. The good news is that we will introduce a fix with the upcoming AppBuilder 2.11 release, next week. However, if you want to use our product inside Visual Studio 2015 right away, you can apply the necessary changes on your side manually. Here are the steps, you will need to perform:
    ​1. Close any opened Visual Studio instances.
    2. In File Explorer, locate the folder of the AppBuilder extension for Visual Studio 2015. Normally, the path should be something like: %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\Extensions\hoq0t24t.vb5\. The folder in yellow (hoq0t24t.vb5) is different each time and you will have to search for the one that contains the AppBuilder extension on your computer (search for Telerik.BlackDragon files).
    3. Once in that folder, you have to delete the following file: Microsoft.Windows.Design.Host.dll
    4. Open Visual Studio 2015 and see if AppBuilder will load as expected.

    If the above doesn't help, please re-install the AppBuilder Extension for Visual Studio and go through the steps again. Please, let me know if you will require further assistance.

    Hi,

    Can you check if your project is using the Custom URL scheme plugin. If it is, please make sure to set the URL_SCHEME plugin variable as described here. This should then resolve the cause for the build failure and you should be able to build your project as expected.

    Let us know if that helps.
