  • Hi,

    I have been trying to get my game working on windows 8.1 by following the tutorial by Ashley at ... store-apps

    and when I get to this part.


    Exporting from Construct 2

    First, ensure your project has the right Name, Description and Author properties set, since these will be used in the exported app.

    After exporting having chosen the Windows Store platform and the Universal 8.1+ app option, your export folder will contain a .sln file. Double-click on it to open it in Visual Studio. If you've not used Visual Studio before, it's a complex and sophisticated tool for application development. However, you only need to use a small number of commands to configure and test your app.

    I get the following error (I am using Visual Studio Express Update 4) Perhaps I need to find an older version (which I can't seem to find ATM)

    Exported as Universal 8.1+ (VS2013.2)


    This version of Visual Studio is unable to open the following projects. The project types may not be installed or this version of Visual Studio may not support them.

    For more information on enabling these project types or otherwise migrating your assets, please see the details in the "Migration Report" displayed after clicking OK.

    No changes required

    These projects can be opened in Visual Studio 2013, Visual Studio 2012, and Visual Studio 2010 SP1 without changing them.

  • Are you using VS2013?

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • Hi The Wyrm. Yes I am using 2013 but update 4. Just thinking that may be the problem? Cannot test it though as Update 2 is no longer available. There is a link to update 2 on MS site, but it always goes to update 4.

  • thorntonp72 Hi, so I just opened up my copy of VS2013 and I have update 3. Which I can tell you works fine. So I just updated to update 4 and that also works fine. So that doesn't help you with your problem other than narrowing down that it maybe some kind of VS setup issue???

    Therefore try searching Google for those errors.

  • Hi TheWyrm,

    okay cool thanks. I will investigate further.


  • thorntonp72 have you found the solution ??? Kindly update here i am on the same track having same errors
