I installed MVC4 on a new machine and then later tried to open a project in MVC3 but did not have it installed. After several failed attempts to install MVC 3 I finally saw that it was failing because there was a newer version of NuGet that is installed
If you have this problem, go to Add Remove Programs in the control panel and remove NuGet and the reinstall Mvc3 and the templates will be available.

wgrant0001 - I know this is an old thread, but I just had to say THANK YOU! This saved my life. I have been trying to install MVC 3 after having installed MVC 4 for like 2 weeks now, and none of the solutions I found worked. Removing NuGet did the trick.
Many blessings to you for posting this : )
I would ask ricka up there, who is on the .NET team, why MS hasn't posted this simple solution anywhere? Or if they have, I sure wasn't able to find it.

Well this post didn't help for me but thise one did: http://surilpatel.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/installing-mvc3-after-mvc4-installation/comment-page-1/.
Most probably because I had vs11 beta installed. Tried deinstalling everything even hinting at mvc4 and nuget but no dice. Extracting the MSI's from the MVC3 installer did the trick though.
