When trying to create a new empty sharepoint project, I am getting this error:
The required version of sharepoint foundation or sharepoint server is not installed on this system. Sharepoint must be installed on the local system to develop sharepoint solutions
The folder is simply created in the chosen directory with no content whatsoever.
I am trying to run on a local machine. I downloaded developer tools and Sharepoint foundation 2013. But still I am getting the error. When Sharepoint foundation installs it automatically opens Visual Studio 2013 in administrator mode, but when trying to create a new empty project, same error pops up.
What can I try? I only found an option where you try to trick the computer into thinking that Sharepoint is actually installed when it's not: See link, but I prefer not to go for this option if there is another way!
Also does perhaps Visual Studio 2012 work better when connecting with Sharepoint Online to create workflows? Because in that case I would try to download it and try from there!
