How to install Xamarin for Visual Studio 2015 when Visual Studio 2013 is installed too?

Question:

Tag: visual-studio-2013,xamarin,visual-studio-2015

I install both Visual Studio 2013 and 2015. I need install Xamarin for VS 2015. But I can't do it because by default it's installing for VS 2013.


Answer:

I think the link below may assist you:

first, uninstall everything related to xamarin.

second, open vs2015 and create new andriod project

third, when project is created you'll see instructions to downloading xamarin. Download the xamarin installer for vs2015, install it, after installation - open vs2015 and see the newly added projects.
