Every time I'm trying to create a Xamarin project on Visual Studio 2015 preview, it creates a dummy project that asks me to download Xamarin opening its website.
I've uninstalled completely Xamarin, and downloaded/installed again from the link it asks but no success.
Besides install it, is there anything we should do in order to get it working?
I have checke this Issue with latest build and I am successfully able to create Xamarin project. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/T4IMDMzo
Could you please check it on latest build? and make sure that while Installing XamarinVS there is option "Entire feature will be installed...."for VS 2015 which should be selected as shown in screencast: http://screencast.com/t/R1Zx6id1usrY
