Solomon Cloud Solutions brings you tips on how to use the Dynamics SL 2015 SDK with VS 2015.
UPDATE 9/27/2016: The instructions below show how to use Visual Studio 2015 as a development environment for Dynamics SL 2015. However, you will not have access to the Code Inspector tool - Code Inspector was developed as a Visual Studio add-in, and add-ins are not supported in Visual Studio 2015.

Visual Studio 2015 is NOT listed as a choice. Why? When the SDK was originally delivered by Microsoft, Visual Studio 2015 was not targeted.

This is great and you can open up projects now without errors in VS 2015. How do you get the SL Code Inspector to run as it doesn't appear in the Tools menu??
