Visual Studio Preview (15.6 Preview 5) Released

Microsoft has yesterday released the fifth version of Visual Studio preview 15.6. The company also provides the preview of SDK Build 17095 as an option. You can download the Visual Studio Preview from here.
The company shares the issues in the version as,
  • Cannot deploy to a device: When attempting to deploy to a mobile device, it fails with the following error: DEP0001: Unexpected Error: SmartDeviceException – Class not registered [0x80131500]
To work around this issue:
  1. Go to Administrative Command Prompt
  2. Run REGSVR32 “\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.17095.0\x86\SirepClient.dll”
However, the following tools are not included in this release
  1. Filtdump.exe
  2. JSConstraintDebug.exe
  3. Regwindmd.exe
  4. Topedit.exe
The company also provides C++ and WinRT with this new version.
“C++/WinRT Now Available:The C++/WinRT headers and cppwinrt compiler (cppwinrt.exe) are now included in the Windows SDK. The compiler comes in handy if you need to consume a third-party WinRT component or if you need to author your own WinRT components with C++/WinRT. The easiest way to get working with it after installing the Windows Insider Preview SDK is to start the Visual Studio Developer Command Prompt and run the compiler in that environment. Authoring support is currently experimental and subject to change. Stay tuned as we will publish more detailed instructions on how to use the compiler in the coming week.The ModernCPP blog has a deeper dive into the CppWinRT compiler. Please give us feedback by creating an issue at:”
With this new release, the company has taken a step ahead in the journey of Visual Studio versions. Let’s hope that developers like this new version.
