Referring to the following question: Visual Studio 2013 remote development

I have tried this method to setup my environment for remote development to my on-premises SharePoint server. However, it does not work. And Google hasn't got me anywhere so far.

I get the following error when I try to create a new SharePoint project in Visual Studio 2013 on my local machine: Project creation error

So my question is: Can i develop SharePoint projects remotely from my Windows 8.1 machine that is running Visual Studio 2013 Pro, to my Windows Server 2012 server hosting the SharePoint services?

Referring to the question posted already: I have tried to extract the registry and import it to my local machine and run the PowerShell command. No luck, same error.

I am running: Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2013 Version 12.0.30723.00 Update 3

1 Answer 1


New project dialog

The project templates in the SharePoint Solutions section do not support remote development while the projects templates in the Apps section do.
