[quote:1rhh2j5o] Update: ALL my apps are now compiling in Windows Universal - no more manifest or compile errors - time well spent.
Hope this helps you too Paula.
I did this, and I still can't see the manifest , either opening with VS2015 or VS2013 (while installing, some 2013 files seemed to be installed as well). Then I also tried installing the Windows 8 tools (under the universal ones you explained how to install), and I still can't open the manifest. This continues happening even when I adapt my app to Construct2 r206, export for Windows 8.1 and open with VS 2013. But, when I try exactly the same with an old app that I had created from scratch in the older Construct 206, then it does work and I can open the manifest.
So, as far as I can see, it is a problem caused by creating the game in the new Construct2 r212.2 in an OS Windows 8.1 (Windows 10 is not ready for my computer yet)
Glad to hear it works for you anyway! And thank you for posting it
