Missing VS 2005 Project Templates

Posted on 2008-06-26
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I installed SQL Server 2005 Standard edition and BIDS was installed as well.  Then, I installed VS 2005.

When I open VS and select New Project, I can see all of the BIDS project templates, but none of the standard VS 2005 project templates.  Where are they located and how do I access them.

BIDS does not install the full Visual Studio, to have access to all VS templates, you need to install the full fledge VS!

My issue is I first installed SQL Server 2005 (which installs BIDS) and THEN I installed VS 2005 on top of BIDS.

When I start VS2005 I can only seed the BIDS project templates (Integration Services and Reporting Services).  I cannot see the VS project templates.

Yes, I go.  Visual Studio appears to be installed correctly.  I have it in the Start Menu and can start the application fine and everything works.

My assumption is simply that the BIDS installation would have pointed towards a Template directory and VS 2005 has a different template directory that I need to identify?
