Microsoft Framework SDK 4.3.2 runs on both 2015 and 2013, but remember not only installing the MSI archive, but also the netmfvsxxxx.vsix executable too!!
I have used them for programing an application on the new FEZ Panda III, on 2012, 2013, or 2015 VisualStudio using C# and runs fine. Don’t forget to update firmware on new boards first.
Gadgeteer runs on 2013, not 2015. But I don´t use it because FezPandaIII is not there. I use Net Framework Console Application instead, and you will found any reference dll supported for your programming.
I remember, in order to have templates or examples on 2012, I just copied the files of the examples and templates on the correct folder VS2012 and it runs, don’t know if gadgeteer is the same easy way.
Forgot to comment that I use VS 2012,13,or 15 installed and running at the same time with lot of versions of NetFramework and it works fine; on the project properties you can change the version you want to use, not needed to uninstall anything.
Hope it helps
Now I have started over with a clean Windows installation. (Virtual machines are great!)
This time I started with VS2013 and then installed the other packages and verything is working now. Maybe there is a glitch in the gadgeteer core installer which causes confusion when VS2015 is installed before.
I like to ask if there are any issues with windows 10
If manages to install everything and in normal mode everything works finally
Firmware update and loader update does not. the boards (cerb net,cerb bee and fez spider are not communicating in the special modes for the update. I cannot even find them in the device manager. in the Firmware update the error "there is more than one device connected appears, even if they are alone connected to to my computer
I have installed VS2013 and the other tools on Windows 10 in a virtual machine on a Linux host. I just had to set the USB settings for the virtual machine to USB2 and everything worked fine. I did a firmware update using this configuration.
