I have been trying to get my game working on windows 8.1 by following the tutorial by Ashley at
https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/993/ho ... 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.
