    I had a similar problem with my C++ Windows 10 project. I resolved it by creating a simple C# Universal app and loading it's MainPage in the designer. This seems to provide some initialization to the designer. I was then able to load my C++ project and use the XAML designer. I hope this solution works for you. I contacted Microsoft about this issue and the said it was a known bug and will be fixed in a later release.

    I would watch out for bug fix releases for Visual Studio, this is unlikely to go on too long without being addressed, not critical, but not far off.

     I had this very same problem - even if I created a brand new Windows 10 XAML app the XAML designer stubbornly refused to show up, with no error message. I tried creating a WPF app, and the designer appeared - so it must be a Windows 10 thing.

    After hours of googling, and getting nowhere, I started 'tinkering' with my project properties.

    I noticed on the project property page there is a section called 'targeting'

    My settings show that a minimum windows 10 version was build 10240, and the Target version was different at 'Insider Preview 10563'. I changed the target version to the minimum version and BLAM!! the XAML designer coughed into life.

    I have no idea what that was all about, but at least I can get some work done at last

    @tareqNoman: The solution is to set the same version for "Target version" and "Minimum version". See DeanChalk answer the 28 of october.

    I have circled the information that I think will solve the issue

    The target Windows 10 Platform for "your app" is newer that the current version of Windows 10
    Update Windows 10 to enable the XAML designer and take advantage of new Windows features
