Solved: Error: this template attempted to load component assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Universal.TemplateWizards...

I got this error message:


when trying to create a Background Application (IoT) project in Visual Studio 2015:



When reading through the setup guide http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/SetupPCRPI.htm an extra time I found out that I've missed installing this when installing Visual Studio 2015:

The required version of Visual Studio Tools for Universal Windows Apps is 14.0.23121.00 D14OOB.

I click on the Templates | Visual C# | Windows | Universal
and from there I installed the templates and after that the error message when creating a background application disappeared.

You need to reinstall Visual Studio or Repair it (Add/Remove Programs -> "Change" VS -> Repair).
