VS Fixes

Software fixes is a set of pages I’ve constructed documenting issues I have encountered with some software, and how I’ve attempted to address the issue to resolve it.


  • “No Items Found” when creating a new Project or adding a new Item.This is a result of a corrupted or otherwise incorrect Templates cache. I first tried uninstalling Visual Studio, and reinstalling it entirely, but imagine my surprise when this did not resolve the issue. I was able to resolve it by following these steps:
    1. Delete Folders \Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache and \Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplatesCache within my Visual Studio install folder.
    2. Open an Elevated Command Prompt and run “devenv /InstallVSTemplates” (found in Common7\IDE)
