Many item templates missing in VS when launched with VSTA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any time Visual Studio is launched with VSTA, only a basic set of item templates is displayed. There is not access to Workflow, Reporting, and several other categories which come up when you use the New Item command in Visual Studio to add an item to the project. Also, custom item templates do not show up.  As soon as I launch Visual Studio directly, they show up just fine.  It seems that VSTA is for some reason filtering out all but the most basic item templates (i.e. Class, Module, etc), preventing us from deploying any custom item templates with our solution.

    Can anyone help me understand what is going on here, or how to work around this limitation?
