I think this is what you are looking for:

The easiest way to create an ATL project is to use the ATL Project Wizard, located in the Win32 Projects folder of the New Project dialog box.

The Express version of Visual Studio comes without MFC or ATL support, so there is no such wizard VS Express. However, you can use the Platform SDK to add ATL support to the Express version. At least that used to work with older releases as describet at http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/12705/Using-WTL-with-Visual-C-2005-Express-Edition ("Using WTL with Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition"), you have to try if that works with 2012 as well. Yet I am not sure if that will bring the wizard up.
