  Hi everyone.
 
  I used to work with CoronaCard before. But now, I have trouble  installing it.
 
  I reinstalled my windows.First, I used Visual Studio 2015, but didn't feel comfortable.
So I installed Visual Studio 2013. And when I installed CoronaCards, it said:
"The extension 'Corona Framework for Windows Phone' require a version of the .NET Framework that is not installed"
 
  So could you tell me which version of .NET Framework I need? 

 

 I'm using Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio 2013 update 4.

Odds are when you re-installed Visual Studio 2013, you forgot to check-on "Windows Phone 8.0 SDK" support.  You can update/modify your Visual Studio installation by doing the following:

  1. Go to "Uninstall a program" under the Windows control panel.
  2. Select "Microsoft Visual Studio 2013" in the list and click the "Change" button.
  3. Click the "Modify" button in the Visual Studio window that pops up.
  4. Check-on the "Windows Phone 8.0 SDK" option.
  5. Click the "Update" button and follow Visual Studio's instructions from there.
  6. Once installation has completed, re-attempt to install the CoronaCards vsix (Visual Studio Extension).

  Thank Joshua, but I did check on the "Windows Phone 8.0 SDK"

 

  Please read my post carefully. Here is some information about this bug:

 There are so many extensions having this bug. They are fixed by editing the Dependency tag in 'extension.vsixmanifest' file.

I tried with CoronaCard but it didn't work. ( After removing the Dependency block, I can install CoronaCard but can't find or add CoronaFrameWork reference in Visual Studio )

 

 Please fix this bug.

Our WP8 extension, framework, and project templates specifically target the .NET 4.5.x framework.  That's by design.

 

My suggestion to you is to install the .NET 4.5 framework.  You can find the download link on Microsoft's website here...

   http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653

 

If the .NET 4.6 release candidate won't let you install 4.5, then uninstall 4.6.

Also make sure you installed the phone emulator as well / hyper V.

 

Good luck,

 

Larry

 I use windows 8.1, it includes .NET 4.5 framework and I can't install it ( not because of the .Net 4.6 release candidate ).

Could you please take a look at the links I posted, and see if you can fix the CoronaCard extension like they did?

  I can create and run windows phone app, just not with CoronaCard.

 

  Thanks for reading,

No one on our end has time right now to dig into this.  Definitely not in the next few weeks.  We're just insanely busy over here.

 

Microsoft provides .NET uninstall instructions here.  In summary, you need to go to Windows 8's "Turn Windows features on and off" window under the control panel.

   https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee942965(v=vs.110).aspx

 

If you're still unable to uninstall .NET 4.6, then perhaps the solution is to go back to an earlier Windows restore point via "System Restore".  Windows automatically creates these restore points for you after doing Windows updates and other key events.  Of course, I only recommend this as a last resort.  You can find this option here...

1) Go to the "System Properties" window.

2) Select the "System Protection" tab.

3) Click the "System Restore" button.

4) Follow the wizard window's instructions from here.

If you are having that much issues what not just use VS 2015 again,

 

I am using it and I am not having any issues with 2015.

 

Seem like it may be an easier fix.
