Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11204) WinJS is missing
Date Fri, 06 May 2016 13:20:12 GMT


Martijn commented on CB-11204:

Maybe I'll try that later.

However my question is: why is this neccesary in the first place?
After all, isn't this simply a web layout engine in a window? What's so complicated about
that? Why does that need *another* framework on top of Cordova?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Windows
>    Affects Versions: 6.1.1
>         Environment: Windows 10, VS2015
>            Reporter: Martijn
> I installed VS2015. In the documentation, there are no further instruction on how to
do that, so I went with the default options. All that just to get MSBuild installed.
> So then:
> {code}
> npm install -g cordova
> cordova create CordovaApp
> cd CordovaApp
> cordova platform add windows
> cordova run windows
> {code}
> So it's a *completely virgin* project. The default's oughta work, right? Wrong:
> {code}
> d:\Projecten\CordovaApp>cordova run windows
> Building project: d:\Projecten\CordovaApp\platforms\windows\CordovaApp.Windows.jsproj
>         Configuration : debug
>         Platform      : anycpu
> C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(2049,5):
error MSB3774: Could not find
> SDK "Microsoft.WinJS.2.0, Version=1.0". [d:\Projecten\CordovaApp\platforms\windows\CordovaApp.Windows.jsproj]
> Error: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\bin\msbuild.exe: Command failed with exit
code 1
> {code}
> So, either a step is missing from the documentation, or it's looking for something that
located someplace else.
> Remember, all related components are *completely* default. I have NEVER touched ANY configuration
of ANY of the involved components or code!
