    Umbraco 8 does not support VS 2015

    Anyone else disappointed that you cannot use the Nuget Package Manager in vs 2015 to install Umbraco 8? Indeed this means you cannot use vs 2015 to install Umbraco 8.

    I'm finding I have to upgrade Visual Studio to the latest version as Nuget v4+ is built into VS 2017 and above and cannot be installed as a separate package. Vs 2015 only supports v3.x of Nuget.

    Really annoying. This is the first time I have needed to upgrade my whole dev environment just to install 1 package.

    It's very annoying, but unfortunately nothing we can do about it. We need to support modern .NET frameworks like we are on now (4.7.2) to get better features and better performance.

    Microsoft decided that it would not support that in VS2015, which I think is an unnecessary limitation as well, but they probably have their reasons.

    The good news is VS2019 is really lovely. :-)

    Thanks for the feedback...I've decided to upgrade to VS 2019.

    FYI VS 2015 does support .net 4.7.2. - it just doesn't support Nuget v4+ which Umbraco 8 has made a dependency.

    Sure! I can't remember exactly what the problem was now, but it was some kind of chicken and egg problem. I believe we needed packages that only supported NuGet 4 and I might have confused that with meaning VS2015 doesn't support .NET 4.7.2.
