Thursday, August 11, 2005 4:32 AMI am using Visual C# 2005 Express and Visual Web Developer 2005 Express on a Windows XP SP2 system and when trying to install either CSCardGame.vsi or TimeTracker.vsi I get the message:
"Installation aborted because the item was a duplicate of an item already installed."
I've checked both programs and they do not show up at all in either "New Project" dialogs. Any documentation on how to manually install these Templates?

If you rename the CSCardGame.vsi file to CSCardGame.zip, you'll be able to open the CSCardGame.zip. Inside that .zip file, you'll see another .zip file (CardGameStarterKit.zip). If you take the CardGameStarterKit.zip file and copy it to your %My Documents%\Visual Studio 2005\ProjectTemplates\Visual C# folder, it should show up in the "New Project" dialog.

That solved it! I was able to get the samples loaded now. Looks like it was a permissions problem since my documents folders are not in the default location.

I get a similar error with timetracker.vsi which complains I do not have the correct version of vstudio. I think its because the code supplied is built with teamsuite (and I have vstudio proffessional).
Can anyone supply the original code in this format please.( I tried the fix above without success.)
