> Windows Platform Guide Needs Updating

>                 Key: CB-12581
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12581
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: cordova-docs, cordova-windows
>            Reporter: grat bodkin
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: backlog, windows
> 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: 
> https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vs-knownissues/vs2015-update3).  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.
