Windows Form Application and Windows Form Control Library project wizard templates for VC++ no longer exist in Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013
- Windows Form Application
- Windows Form Control Library
Therefore, you can’t create new projects based on Visual C++ templates for Windows Form Application and Windows Form Control Library in Visual C++/CLI (Common Language Infrastructure).
We recommend that you do not create Windows Forms applications in C++/CLI and instead use C++/CLI for interoperability only.
Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013 will still support existing Windows Form Application and Windows Form Control Library in C++/CLI UI applications that were made previously by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2012.
