Visual Studio 2012 templates for SharePoint 2013

January 23, 2013 2 comments

 

So I just fired up Visual Studio 2012 and went to create a new SharePoint 2013 App just to play around with. Only to find that Visual Studio only has the 2010 templates available.

 

The search to find out what I needed to install wasn’t as quick and simple as I was hoping so now that I have worked it all out i may as well share with the rest of you.

 

Assuming you have Visual Studio 2012 installed. Go to

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/apps/fp123627

 

Scroll down and under the tools section there is a web downloader (Direct Link). Download and run it, it will download everything you are missing.

 

After a couple of restarts you can then create 2013 projects in visual studio

Hope that helps
