Hi, based on the screenshot it seems that the package was partially or incorrectly registered since you were able to use the project template but the context menu is not the one that should show up for that type of project item. Make sure you have properly followed the installation instructions. If you are using the Source version, it could be a good idea to perform a Reset the Experimental Hive - Rebuild the Service Factory Solution - Register the Package. In case you have installed the binary version, then you should probably try reinstalling by following the steps listed in the InstallationInstrucionts.pdf file.

I have installed correctly.

I am using VS2008 on Vista. I ran dev /setup then installed the msi.

I found more information that may be of help. There seems to be two different project types. Same names but in a different location.


The one located under Other Project Types is also called Model Edition. The icons representing it is an "unknown file" icon in Vista.

When I create a solution using the template in Guidance Packages, I have the context menu. Although It can only be created by creating an entire solution. (can't add to existing solutions). The template located under Other Project Types allows me to either create a new solution or add it to an existing solution. The template under Other Project Types does not contain the context menu. Only the one under Guidance Packages does.
