Visual Studio 2005 Templates Missing

with 3 comments

Today I opened Visual Studio 2005 and what I saw is…all my template gone. How does it happened. Dont know exactly how this happened but followings are the solutions.

  • In the Options select Projects and Solutions where the folders for the templates are located. There is the path to your “My Documents/Visual Studio …..” to fix this problem change the path for the project templates to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates and for the User Templates use C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates or copy the stuff inside of this folders to your “My Documents…..” Path.


  • Run  devenv /installvstemplates
