Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-10842) Update MSBuild 15 support
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2016 17:49:33 GMT


Jason Ginchereau resolved CB-10842.
    Resolution: Invalid

I investigated this problem further and discovered it is a bug in the setup of the VS preview
version. The appropriate team will fix that bug. So there's no change needed in Cordova.

> If you have both MSBuild 14 and 15 installed (VS 2015 and a preview of the next VS version),
and you try use VS 2015 to build a Cordova project that targets Windows/Phone 8.1, it will
fail because MSBuild 15 is unable to build those target types.
> Support for MSBuild 15 was added to Cordova a couple months ago, as CB-10292. At the
time, MSBuild 15 supported all the same targets as MSBuild 14. But since then it has dropped
support for building Windows/Phone 8.1 targets. So instead of picking the latest available
MSBuild version, Cordova needs to prefer MSBuild 14 when targeting Windows/Phone 8.1.
