Update - as per some similar comments on Twitter, a Repair will resolve the issue. Tried it and it now works. Note that the repair only worked after downloading the entire VS 2015 Preview ISO. It did not offer Repair as an option when running the web-only install (nor did re-running the web-only install resolve the issue).
