    Welcome to the MSDN forum!

    It seems that you haven't installed the "Microsoft Office Developer Tools " on the computer.

    Please refer to the following threads:

    Visual Studio 2010 - Office Templates do not appear 
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vsto/thread/8393184d-4c4f-4d77-9493-8c5e3480021f 

    The Office developer tools are included only with the following editions of Visual Studio 2010:
    Visual Studio 2010 Professional
    Visual Studio 2010 Premium
    Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

    The Office developer tools are an optional component of Visual Studio. These tools are installed by default when you install one of the Visual Studio editions listed above. If you customize the Visual Studio installation by selecting which features to install, select Microsoft Office Developer Tools during setup to install the tools.

    Thanks.

  • Please run repair on your VS installation (and make sure office suite is actually installed on that computer before doing it)
