  • Hi Krishna,

    Were you able to successfully get a developer license on that machine?

    How did you install the Consumer Preview? Did you upgrade or do a clean install?

  • it was a clean install.....i can see that zip files of templates are present in the following folder "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\VisualBasic\Windows Metro style".... but they donot show up in the project creation wizard..thnx for the help

  • To clarify, you said you installed "vs 11 developer preview" - did you mean "vs 11 Beta"?  If you are using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you need to install Visual Studio 11 Beta, not Developer Preview.

    If you have the Beta installed, try running:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv /installvstemplates

    When that is complete, do the templates show up in the New Project Dialog?
