  • Hi Donatas123321,

    Thanks for your post.

    Could you please tell me what's the version of your Visual Studio 2015?

    I have encountered the same problem when I change the language of the VS2015. Have you changed the language of your VS?

    For your issue, please run your  Visual Studio in Safe mode to Check whether some add-ins and extensions affect it(devenv /safemode).

    Also You could try to restore the template in VS2015 then try it again.

    1. Delete the ItemTemplatesCache, ProjectTemplatesCache folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE)

    2. In the command prompt, navigate to the location of devenv.exe. This file is located in <Visual Studio Installation Path>\Common7\IDE.

    3. Type "devenv /installvstemplates" and press Enter.

    If above suggestions still no help. I think there is something wrong with your VS2015. Please repair your VS or install the VS2015 Update1 then try it again.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
