Description Gutemberg 2014-11-22 07:24:51 UTC
Every time I'm trying to create a Xamarin project on Visual Studio 2015 preview, it creates a dummy project that asks me to download Xamarin opening its website.

I've uninstalled completely Xamarin, and downloaded/installed again from the link it asks but no success.

Besides install it, is there anything we should do in order to get it working?

Thank you!
