I want to create a visual webpart sandbox solution, I found this tool: " Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Power Tools" who don't work with Visual studio 2015. Do you have an idea, which tool should I use? Thanks

You should use the Office Developer tools outlined here: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/features/office-tools-vs.aspx

The visual webpart is found in the Office/SharePoint -> SharePoint Solutions category

enter image description here

You then need to set the project to Sandboxed in the project properties

  • thankx @Robert, I ll try it but did it have sandbox webpart in it or should I make something ?

  • The tool you mentioned it works with VS community edition, I guess. For enterprise you will need microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=51683. I had this problem sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/184606/… Commented Jun 28, 2016 at 8:45
  • If that link goes to Community edition, Microsoft has some errors in their linking. You need to have a higher version of Visual Studio than Community to develop SharePoint Commented Jun 28, 2016 at 9:04
  • @AtishDipongkor your related question is also for 2016 development, we are talking 2010 here ( I guess) Commented Jun 28, 2016 at 9:05
