No templates and no snippets

Jan 4, 2013 at 8:07 PM


I'm using VS2012 Professional on Windows 7.

I've installed GalaSoft.MvvmLight. and GalaSoft.MvvmLight. but none of them does install the MVVM Light template. When I go to Extensions and Updates, there is no MVVM light.

Have you restarted Visual Studio?  Also, the templates are for C# only.

I have the same issue -- Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate running on Windows 8 Pro x64.  I quit VS2012, ran the installer, then started VS2012 and no templates were installed for C#.

DUH!  Brain-drain alert!

Go to the MVVM Light in the Start Menu, open up the Vsix folder and install the appropriate file.
