VS 2019 Project Template not found

Post by surfrider »

In stalled Visual Studio 2019 with the Cpp4Robots extension.
Toolbar is visible, I can open the example projects in the Program Files folder.
But when I try to create a new project, the Project Template is not found.

Any ideas?

Hi,

can you check if "Desktop development with C++" is included in your Visual Studio installation?
  • Start Visual Studio Installer(C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer\vs_installer.exe)
  • Press the button "Modify"
  • Check the component "Desktop development with C++"

Yes, "Desktop development with C++" is installed. Both that is the online installed workload.

Maybe one of the others is needed?

1. Can you see this zip file? c:\Users\<user>\Documents\Visual Studio 2019\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Cpp4Robots\Lego\LegoEV3.zip

2. Can you select these options when creating a new project?
Language: C++
Platform: Lego Mindstorms
Project type: Cpp4Robots

3. You can start Visual Studio with logging.
Example: c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /log "c:\Temp\vslog.txt"
Then send me this log file to email: support@cpp4robots.cz

Item 1 might be the problem.
The Template Zip file is is C:\<User>\Documents .... folder as you have written.
But that is not the location of the "my documents" folder.
I think your installer does not use the "my documents" folder location but is hard coded to the standard my documents folder.

I copied the Cpp4Robots folder (including the zip file) to the correct folder. Now the template is found and it works.
