I have an existing Ionic application where I have had all of Android, iOS, and Windows platforms included. I have left out Windows for a while, but now have the need to build a Windows 10 UWP version.
I thought since I added the Windows platform a long time ago (when Ionic in Beta and on a different Windows machine), I’d first remove it and then add it back (as it didn’t build anyway).
I Now seem get an error that sees to be related to the
cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine that I added for iOS.
I have Visual Studio 2017 installed (and all the Cordova etc packages)…
Here is the error I get…
