I have installed SharePoint server 2013 on my dev machine and it is working fine when I login as an administrator. and after that I installed Visual studio 2012 professional on the same machine. But seems that Visual Studio did not find SharePoint automatically , as when I tried to create a new SharePoint project from Visual Studio, the following error was raised “A SharePoint server is not installed in this computer ”.

Can anyone advice?



Since Visual Studio 2012 was released before the updated version of SharePoint there (were) some post install updates that had to be run. I believe at this point, everything is bundled into VS 2012 Update 2 which was released recently.

You may also need to install the Office Developer Tools for VS 2012: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/office-dev-tools-for-visual-studio
