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
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.
