Description

With the Betha VC11.0 there was Windows Form App. I updated to 2012RC (only Ultimate has worked) bot now I can not find the template. Windows Form App is the reason I´m using c++ and VSt toghether. The new installation deleted my favorite template from the my "old" VS2011 Betha.

I think it is inconsiderate of the customer of Visual Studio in version 11 or later to not provide a template for a Windows Forms application for c++. You once did, you do still for cs, so please just do it for c++ and no excuses for why not.

Hi,

Thanks for information.
I dont know its funny to read it or to know it.
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate doesn't have (support) InteliSense for C++.
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vcblog/archive/2011/03/03/10136696.aspx
Visual C++ Team said: "The good news is that C++/CLI IntelliSense will be in the next version of Visual Studio."

And now Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate got InteliSense for C++ but u can't create a simple Visual C++ Form application. Just "If you have existing C++/CLI Windows Forms applications, you can open them in Visual Studio 2012, modify them, add new forms and other items, build them etc. "

Serious - can't follow the idea and reason for this decision.

U got Visual 2010 with a maybe little problem. Wait for next version. U got Visual 2012. Little problem gone.
For solve a little problem u got a big problem.

I think next version will to solve both problems, with no C++.
This is very disappointing we go backward.

Now i need 2010 to design a form application in c++ and to finish the job u must use 2012.

Hi qPCR4vir,

Thanks for taking time to provide feedback to us.

C++/CLI is a great solution for interop, but we do not recommend creating brand new UI applications using C++/CLI.

As you mentioned, maintaining existing C++/CLI Windows Forms applications is fully supported in Visual Studio 2012. If you have existing C++/CLI Windows Forms applications, you can open them in Visual Studio 2012, modify them, add new forms and other items, build them etc.

I would like to get a better understanding of your requirement to create new C++/CLI UI applications. If you like, you can contact me directly at ‘sumit dot kumar at microsoft dot com’.

Thanks
Sumit Kumar

Migrate a CLR console project to a Windows Forms one as described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317433

Creating the template by yours self:
1. Create an empty C++ solution with both 2012RC (New Project -> Other Project Types -> Visual Studio Solutions -> Blank Solution) and MSVC2010 Express (New Project -> Visual C++ -> Empty Project).
2. Using 2010 Express, create a new Windows Form App project (name it “myWForm11” or so) inside the folder of the 2012RC empty solution. Close all saving.
3. Using 2012RC and the "add existing project", add the 2010 Express-WinForm App project into the empty 2012RC solution.
4. Right click on the solution to upgrade VC++ projects to 2012RC "format"
5. FILE -> Export Template ... -> Next> Type in Template name: "Windows Form App, C++ 2012RC" or so and some description too.
6. Finish
7. Close solution
Now you can create WF App in 2012RC “as always” (New Project -> Installed -> Templates -> Visual C++ -> Windows Form App, C++ 2012RC).
It works and it is simple! But I don’t know all the consequences.
