Installer template missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am doing practice on creating setup projects for deployment. On the book( 70-526 training kit) page 683,  which is in Chapter 15 lesson2 lab step 10.

    9. In Solution Explorer, select your application project (Chapter15BothLabsVBPartial).                                                                                              

     10. From the Project menu, choose Add New Item. In the Add New Item dialog box, select Installer Class. Then click Add.

    My questions: I haven't found the Installer class template at all.

    Thanks for help.

  • I just tried it out in Visual Studio 2008 SP1. After selecting Add New Item, the dialog box offers "Installer Class" right there in alfabetical order between "Icon file" and "Interface".

    Maybe your installation of Visual Studio got corrupted somehow, and you lost some of the templates? Or perhaps you are using a limited version, such as the Express Edition, and it doesn't have this template?
