Recovering Missing Templates in Visual Studio
Recently I decided to expand my coding knowledge and picked up a Visual Basic book. I’ve been working in this new book for about two weeks when I opened Visual Studio this morning and all my VB templates had disappeared. Of course, it turned out to be a common problem and immediately found the answer so I thought I’d just pass it along.
- Make sure that Visual Studio is not open and bring up a command prompt
- Navigate to the Visual Studio executable (devenv.exe) is. In my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\. Could vary depending on the version of VS and processer you have.
- Type devenv.exe/installvstemplates and this will reinstall your templates for you!
