Visual Studio 2013 is missing the installed templates related to graphics, SPECIFICALLY the fbx scene template.. Why is this so? And where do I get them ?

  • \$\begingroup\$ What OS are you using? What edition of Visual Studio? And do you mean 'project template' or some other kind of template or do you mean 'build customization files'? \$\endgroup\$ – Chuck Walbourn Mar 29 '15 at 16:36

This should help: From MSDN: How to: Restore Default Project Templates:

If you accidentally delete the default project templates that are included with Visual Studio, you can use this procedure to restore them without reinstalling Visual Studio.

To restore the default project templates In the command prompt, navigate to the location of devenv.exe. This file is located in \Common7\IDE. Note:If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must open the command prompt as an administrator by right-clicking the command prompt and then clicking Run as administrator.

Type "devenv /installvstemplates" and press Enter. Note:If you are using an Express Edition of Visual Studio, type "Express /installvstemplates" where is either VB or VCS for Visual Basic and Visual C#, respectively.

If this procedure does not restore the default templates, reinstall Visual Studio.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Brendy Donnelly Did you try reinstalling? \$\endgroup\$ – Switch Mar 29 '15 at 17:20
  • \$\begingroup\$ no I tried the repair installation option, these templates never existed on my version even before I updated from community to ultimate so I'm wondering maybe their not included in the 2013 edition??? Maybe there is a separate download or something?? \$\endgroup\$ – Brendy Donnelly Mar 29 '15 at 17:26
