Install Templates

Apr 30, 2008 at 5:07 PM
Please excuse my 'newbie'-ness..... How do I get the Templates to show up in Visual Studio 2008 when I start a new project?

I downloaded and ran the installer. I currently have a folder "SmartTemplates SmartPart Project Template" in "C:\Documents and Settings\geneca1\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates\"

Is this where it belongs? What do I need to do now to get the templates to show up?

I appreciate your help.

Hi, I have the same problem as Nancy.

Do you have any other Templates folder in your My Documents? I've noticed that the installer sometimes doesn't deploy the templates to the correct folder.

Can't see any solution posted, I have tried to add the two zip-files to one or all my template folders I can find but still they do not show up in VS 2008 when I want to create a new project. Please help me.

I have installed solution, then copied zip files from '[profile name]\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates' to '[profile name]\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Web Developer' because I chosen this option on first run. then restart of VS and you can find those templates under 'Visual C#' project type at the same bottom - 'My Templates' next to 'Search Online Templates...'
