no universal app template
I just installed Visual Studio 2015 in my Windows 8.1 environment. There is no Windows Universal App template installed and I could not find the template online.
I understand we were to be able to create Windows Universal Apps in Windows 8.1 with limited development capabilities.
Could you please let me know what you selected in the installation settings? You need to make sure you select the Windows Development Tools.
When you install, if you select “Custom” and then choose the “Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.0/8.1 Tools” checkbox, you should see the Windows 8.1 Universal templates.

It is no longer an issue. Subsequent installations of Visual Studio 2015 has the proper template for creating new UWP apps. Thanks for the reply.
