Re: Setup an deployment template missing after installing.

You may want to try repairing the installation via 'Programs and Features' in the Control Panel or an uninstall/re-install should resolve the issue as well.

Re: Setup an deployment template missing after installing.

What edition of Visual Studio 2013 are you using ?

InstallShield Limited Edition for Visual Studio is included with Visual Studio 2010 and higher versions.
InstallShield Limited Edition for Visual Studio supports Visual Studio Professional, Premium and Ultimate editions.


If you meet the requirements above, you can attempt to flush the template cache

Navigate to the folder below
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE>

In a command prompt, execute the following:
devenv /installvstemplates

Once the process completes you can Launch Visual Studio and you should then see your missing templates.

Installed Version: Professional.

Re: Setup an deployment template missing after installing.

It looks like you provided the information from the Help > About screen from Visual Studio but it suggests that you have the free Community edition which InstallShield Limited Edition is not supported on which may explain why you are unable to see the project template.


You should be able to confirm this by going to Programs and Features in Windows Control Panel and looking for "Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2013 with Update 4" and the Limited Edition WILL NOT work with this version


The Professional edition would be listed as "Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2013" and the Limited Edition WILL work with this edition.


You may want to confirm your licensing with Microsoft if you think that it is incorrect.
