Description Justin Antoszek 2016-03-31 20:28:30 UTC
Using VS2015 Update 2 with the latest Xamarin updates but I am unable to build the basic 'Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Shared)' project. When I try to build the UWP app I get:

Your project.json doesn't list 'win10-x86' as a targeted runtime. You should add '"win10-x86": { }' inside your "runtimes" section in your project.json, and then re-run NuGet restore. App2.UWP (which is in the file btw)

Unable to resolve Xamarin.Forms (>= for UAP,Version=v10.0. (which is findable in nuget)

NuGet Package restore failed for project App2.UWP for 'Xamarin.Forms (>='.

Completely empty project - all I did was try to deploy.

That said - I am able to build and launch the Windows 8.1 build from the same solution

I had the same error.  There was a recent Nuget package update that fixed this issue for me.

Thank you for taking the time to submit this report. After reviewing the description of this bug, we believe it no longer affects the current version of Xamarin.Forms.
