  1. Hi there, what about the 2010 node? I need to open an existing 2010 .wsp file but cannot import it into VS as I don’t see the node for 2010. Am I missing something? First time having to do this. Basically trying to get a .wsp onto our new SP 2013 sites. Thanks

    1. Is your local machine can reach to the SP Server? if yes so you can! else you will need to work with SharePoint Client side Object model (dll) in case, you want to work locally and deploy it later to the SP server otherwise, you will need to install VS on the SP server but it’s not recommended to install any dev tools on the production environment, so try to build your Dev VM environment.
