Create an empty project in Visual Studio then install the NuGet packages with a specific version.
@johan : You mean I create an empty project and install version 8 explicitly ?
PM> Install-Package EPiServer.CMS -Version 8.0.0
Exactly. I never use the Episerver Visual Studio templates to create a new project.
I understand after 7.5 onwards it is the nuget packages which are responsible for providing the relevant referenced assemblies. As of now I am trying to create an Episerver project of version 8. I have the deployment center installed and Visual studio extension for Episerver as well.
When I try to create a new project from the Visual studio extension template, it gets created in Episerver 9 and When I try to create a site from Deployment center in 7.5 it gets created properly but when the project file is opened in visual studio and a .sln file is created by saving the project , it starts throwing the structure map issue.
Is there an easy way to have a working Episerver 8 CMS site in visual studio?
Any input on this?
Visual studio extension for episerver should ask for the version like the .net framework version is asked for
