  • Hi Hertz0008,

    Thanks for your post.

    Have you met any error when installing?

    I recommend you repair Visual Studio first:

    "open your Control panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features, right click Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 -> Uninstall/Change -> repair/reinstall”

    Or you can try the following common steps to re-install templates:

    1) Please open Windows Explorer, and navigate to  <Visual Studio Installation Path>\Common7\IDE (by default is C:\Program Files \Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE); 
    2) Delete the ItemTemplatesCache, ProjectTemplatesCache folder; 
    3) Open Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010) under Start menu -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 -> Visual Studio Tools (run it with Administrator privilege: right-click the program -> Run as administrator); 
    4) Run the devenv /InstallVSTemplates switch; 
    5) Run the devenv /Setup switch

    If you still cannot find any SQL tempaltes like: SQL Server 2008 Database Project

    Please refer to this blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2009/05/20/collect.aspx to gather some installation logs for me.  After that, you can upload your vslogs.cab from %tem% folder to SkyDrive and share the link to me.

    I'll try to find some info from your installation logs.
