possible issues may occur if you use new features/additions/functionalities from the 2015 version but core features must be same.

What kind of app? Windows forms should survive but anything might suffer.

Hello Eric,

I need to develop and access report generating  desktop project.
The client has asked in visual studio 2010 ,just wondering if  a project built in vs 2015 makes any difference.

That should work. Just be sure to target .Net Framework 4.0.

Bear in mind your client might not be able to open the project source in VS 2010 if you develop it in VS2015 and supply the source code to the client.
Microsoft has a tendency to change the project/solution files between each version of VS.
