Build fails if referencing "Syncfusion Controls for UWP XAML"

I get following fatal build error if I only add a reference to "Syncfusion Controls for UWP XAML" ( without any code changes:

2>Task "CompileXaml"
2>MSBUILD : error MSB4166: Child node "2" exited prematurely. Shutting down. Diagnostic information may be found in files in the temporary files directory named MSBuild_*.failure.txt.

I could not find file MSBuild_*.failure.txt. Error disappears if I remove the reference. I cannot build sample project "SampleBrowser_2015" either, although in that case there is not any clear error message (other than "build failed").

I am using Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise (latest version).

Any ideas?

Fixed. I uninstalled the whole Enterprise Studio and also the earlier version 13.2.* that had been left into my PC after previous installation. Then I installed only the package "UWP" and not the whole suite as I did earlier. Don't really know what was the issue, but now it works.
