well if i understand you right , to create new project with latest stable build ( im using 2.1.5 )
you do :
1.cd to cocos2d-x-2.1.5\tools\project-creator
2.run the python script ( you can run create_project.py -help for the options)
3.then go to the cocos2d-x-2.1.5\projects dir and there you will find your template project created
4.from within visual studio 2012 load the VC project that located in you new project
proj.win32 directory .
5.compile and run .
is this solved you problem ?
