  • Hi Sakthi,

    >>On installing, it is not available in "C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ProjectTemplates" folder

    What do you mean by saying "it is not available"? It's better to provide us the detailed steps about how you create this VSIX package, how you install this VSIX package and what the error message is.

    If you mean it did not appear in that folder, please check the source.extension.vsixmanifest file, make sure you have added an assert of type Microsoft.VisualStudio.ProjectTemplate and correctly set the path to the exported template .zip file.

    You could check the MSDN documents here for reference:
