# How to get the MonoGame Templates working with Visual Studio C# 2013 Express?

I've been looking around forever, and I can't seem to find a way to install the MonoGame C# Templates for Visual Studio 2013 Express. These include things like "SpriteFont", etc. that pop up in the templates menu when you click "Add New Item" in the solution menu. I've installed every last MonoGame related thing I can find on the internet and NOTHING has solved my problem.

To clarify, I have all the project templates that come with MonoGame:

but I'm missing all the item templates:

There should be templates in the list there labelled "SpriteFont" and other miscellaneous MonoGame related templates.

So how do I get the MonoGame templates?

EDIT: For the record, I have already tried following the advice given here, here, here, here, here and here. I also learnt from the 5th link that apparently I don't have the MonoGame template projects for things like "Empty Content Project" either.

EDIT 2: This didn't work either.

EDIT 3: I've also followed the advice here, yet again to no avail (what a surprise!).

• Did you run the installer here monogame.net/2015/03/16/monogame-3-3-2? – ClassicThunder Apr 5 '15 at 4:35
• Yes I have ran that installer (the first one). – user3002473 Apr 5 '15 at 4:38
• Monogame content project is there if you scroll up. i.gyazo.com/ae93ac2fa4aa0d74ac442d0b19ee207a.png – dimitris93 Apr 5 '15 at 5:26
• Not for me. You have a folder labelled "XNA Game Studio 4.0" on the side there, whereas I don't, despite the fact that I've installed it and copied over the files from Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0 (as is done in the third link). – user3002473 Apr 5 '15 at 5:38
• Problem is I don't have the actual link of the file I sent you. If you have it post it and accept your answer – dimitris93 Apr 5 '15 at 6:16

The file XNA Game Studio 4.0.vsix is the template installer for visual studio 2013.
