how to import templates from vs2012 into vs2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I import all of the templates I made in vs2012 into vs2012. I tried copying them from C:\Users\Ross.SHELBYSYS\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\My Exported Templates into C:\Users\Ross.SHELBYSYS\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\My Exported Templates but  vs2012 does not  see them.

    What  have I missed?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You moved the wrong folder. If we move the templates to My Exported Templates folder, they don't work.

    By default, custom templates are located in:

    • \My Documents\Visual Studio Version\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Language\
    • \My Documents\Visual Studio Version\Templates\ItemTemplates\Language\

    Hi Ego, I don't know if you can help me but any assistance would serve me. I want add templates in shell isolated. I create the project and item templates but I don't see it in shell isolated.

    Thank you very much.
    Fabiana.
