I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 version 8.0.50727.762 (SP .050727-7600)
Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0.50727 SP1
TYPICALLY if I want to create a new web form in the VS IDE, I right click on the project and select "Add New item..." from the popup window.
Then a dialog box is displayed that is named "Add New Item - Solution Items".
Then inside of this dialog box I am allowed to select among templates "Visual Studio installed templates". The template items are
"Text file","HTML Page","Style Sheet","XML File","XML Schema","XSLT File" etc. These are tasks we as developers do everyday practically?
Except now, there seems to be some type of problem going on. If I try and create a new web form or add a new file (.aspx, text etc.) in the Visual
studio IDE I get the dialog box I just talked about. Except the problem is that the dialog box is empty. In other words, it no longer contains the
"Visual Studio installed templates" that it normally list.
Can someone tell me what the heck might be going on? Why am I not presented with any of the usual templates to select from, to build
my project with? This problem seems to have crept up in the past few weeks and is very strange, because it was not happening previous to
that time period.

When you use a registery cleaner, this problem might occur.
Open a new ‘Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt’. Once there type the following command at the prompt, press enter and wait…

Thank you for your help. In your command above, what parameter does "devenv" stand for? I ran your command in the command window and I get an error message. I tried it twice.
Command "devenv" is not valid.
Command "installvstemplates" is not valid.

Use the Visual Studio Command Prompt.
Start | Programs | VS | VS Tools ...

I don't appear to have a Command Prompt.
It's not in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\ directory.
All I have in that directory is a folder named vcpackages

If you have vista, run the visual studio command prompt as administrator. Then try devenv /installvstemplates
