    Hi everyone!

    I installed the Sitefinity project manager v. 8.2.5900.0 and created a new project, i have access to the backend, But when im trying to edit the project in Visual Studio 2010 i have an incompatibility error (THIS PROJECT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE CURRENT VERSION OF VISUAL STUDIO). Any solution? i can´t install another VS.

    I hava another Sitefinity Project in V. 7.2.5310.0 and i don´t have any problem with VS2010, May i download a new project in V. 7.2.XXXX?

    Hi Jhon,

    Required revision of the Visual Studio for development of the Sitefinity 8.2 are Microsoft® Visual Studio 2012, 2013, and 2015.

    Please read our documentation on System requirements for development of the Sitefinity 8.2 at

    If you have the license of the older version of the Sitefinity, the project manager of the Sitefinity of that version can be downloaded through account associated with that version.

    Please read our documentation on Install Sitefinity at to find out how to download the project manager.
