Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-12581) Windows Platform Guide Needs Updating

             Summary: Windows Platform Guide Needs Updating
                 Key: CB-12581
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Docs, Windows
            Reporter: grat bodkin

The windows platform guide in the cordova documentation fails to mention anything about the
requirements for Visual Studio. 

After installing cordova via npm, as well as Visual Studio 2015 Express from Microsoft's website,
cordova windows applications will not build due to project compatibility errors.

There is little to no documentation online about how to get around this problem.

Note, the solution is to make SURE that Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 is installed.  However,
there are known issues with installing update 3 to an existing installation (see:
 Ultimately, if users are developing with Visual Studio 2015, the easiest work around is to
install VS2015 using the full product installer called  "Visual Studio 2015 with Update 3".

There should probably be something in the windows platform guide about this so that people
can actually follow the rest of the platform guide, and build their projects successfully.
