Visual Studio 2008 Environment Setup Question

I have Visual Studio 2008 SP1 installed.   When I select a New Project and select a template, there is no "Location Box" to save the project AND no check box to "Create Directory for Solution"....

I have seen tutorials where both of these options are available

I am just guessing but maybe when I setup this machine for development (its been a while), it was optimized for WinForms and not Web Apps (.NET apps).

Any suggestions?

Location option not appears for "Visual Basic Development Settings"

You have to use "General Development Settings" for that
