I'm trying to install Xamarin to the Visual Studio 15 preview. I keep getting the following error:

Visual Studio 15 Xamarin

I have Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 installed, probably it causes this issue. Is it possible to install Xamarin for VS 15 Preview side by side with VS 2015 Update 2?

    Why do you have a preview version of Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 installed? The stable version was already released. Xamarin is just a template type for Visual Studio at this stage since its free with Visual Studio. Uninstalll everything then install Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 Enterprise directly from the .ISO – Ramhound Apr 15 '16 at 20:56
  • Actually, I have a stable version of Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 installed. I want to install a preview version of Visual Studio 15 which was announced at Build conference – pfedotovsky Apr 16 '16 at 12:11

Just solved the issue. I need to change Xamarin installation instead of trying to install Xamarin from Visual Studio setup. So, go to installed programs,

Xamarin Setup

And then install Xamarin for Visual Studio 15 Preview:

Xamarin VS
