UserControl Template not showing in Visual studio Wisej template list



With Visual Studio community 2017 and Wisej installed, the template for a new UserControl is not shown in the “add new Item” list (see picture).

In the custom template folder, under C#/Wisej there is the “UserControl” folder, but it contains only the __icon, without any other file.

This is what I tried:

  • Repair Wisej actual version from installer;
  • Uninstall/Reinstall Wisej;
  • Copied UserControl template from VS2015 template folder;
  • Installed on another machine with VS2017 a fresh instance of Wisej (same result- empty UserControl template folder)

Could you help me?

It worked. I “stole” the template files from 2015 folder and run “devenv /installvstemplates”.

Thank you

Check the content of C:\Users\{User Name}\Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ItemTemplates. It the file exists, you can try to reset the template cache. using a VS command line:

devenv /installvstemplates

If the file is not there for some reason you can copy it from another installation or I can send you a zip with all the templates.
