# Steps to reproduce
Install vs 2017 RC Only, (VS 2015 not installed)
File new / Cross Platform Project / Master Detail
Install 4.3 Xamarin for Windows, release Feb 28


# Expected behavior
See templates for PCL Xamarin Forms
Ability to change to Alpha channel in Tools / Xamarin / Other

# Actual behavior
Only shared code project is available and test and class lib.
"Other" section is missing on Tools / Xamarin / and am only able to get stable builds
Getting these errors:
1)
Could not add all required packages to the project. The following packages failed to install from 'C:\PROGRAM FILES (X86)\MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIO\2017\ENTERPRISE\COMMON7\IDE\EXTENSIONS\AQTUDQPT.UIO\Packages': Microsoft.NETCore.UniversalWindowsPlatform.5.1.0 : Package restore failed. Rolling back package changes for 'Xam4.UWP'.
2) Metadata file '..\..\packages\Microsoft.Net.Native.Compiler.1.6.0\tools\Packages\Microsoft.NETNative.Analyzer\1.0.0\analyzers\dotnet\cs\NativeGatekeeper.dll' could not be found
3) Android Designer could not run because: Your Java version (1.7.0) is too old. You must have at least 1.8 installed.
Please install it or set Java Development Kit path for Oracle 1.8+ on Tools->Options->Xamarin->Android Settings menu

Lots of errors on UWP build. on line 24 MainPage.xaml.cs  LoadApplication(new $safeprojectrootname$.App());

Comment 1 Jose Gallardo 2017-03-06 12:01:01 UTC
Hi Russell,

I will split this bug report in three issues for replying:

1. Not classic Xamarin updater/channel support on VS2017: this is by design, as Xamarin support is bundled and distributed as a VS feature in VS 2017.

2. Missing PCL X.Forms templates: this has been already fixed and will be included in the RTW version of VS 2017.

3. Build issues with the templates: also fixed and included in RTW.

Thanks for reporting.
