    • Why is this listed as a UWP sample?  https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/master/Samples/FolderEnumeration 
      
      Loading in VS 2015 Update 2 I get this error:
      
      ...\C#\FileSearch.csproj : error  : The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\WindowsXaml\v12.0\Microsoft.Windows.UI.Xaml.CSharp.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.  ...\UWPFileAccess\C#\FileSearch.csproj
