I have been using VS 2005 for about 9 months and recently had a .Net Programming class where we went over WPF and WCF.  I wanted to work with it on my own pc, but I do not see those templates under New>Project

In our class labs you would go to open a new project and under your language, for me VB, the was a choice for .Net 3.0.  When you selected it you got your Windows Foundation Templates.

I assumed that this got installed with .Net framework 3.0 but maybe I am wrong.  In my C:\WINNT\Microsoft.Net\Framework folder I have v1.0, v1.1, v2.0 and v3.0.  I looked in the v3.0 folder and I see folders for WCF and WPF, but I still don't show those templates.

Also, if I open VS 2005 and go to Help>About, the >net Framwork Version shows as 2.0.  (Image1)

Any thoughts on what could be wrong or is there something else I need?

Is the only way for me to get these templates in 2005 is by downloading the Extensions for WCF and WPF November 2006 CTP?

I think that you used .NET 2008 then. There you can choose your version :)

That's a good find!!  Looks like it was what I thought though, I either have to have installed VS 2008 or WCF/WPF VS 2005 Extensions November CTP.  Since I have done neither of those, I don't have an install that needs to be fixed and as such my registry is as it should be.

Thanks for the assistance.
