I saw a link on Andrew Stopford’s blog which pointed to yet another blog by John Rayner that showed a way of installing the WPF/e template into VS2005 without Web application projects. Well, my templates still didn’t install properly and I did have the Web application project extensions installed.
I managed to get it to install by running the install from a command prompt that was launched using Admin priveleges (ie. Run As Administrator). So at the command prompt, I ran the following:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\WPFE\Tools\WPFEVSTemplate.msi"
Now life is good and I have the templates installed.
