I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite. I've read all the help files on exporting a project template. There's just one problem- if I go to the File menu, the option Export Template just is NOT there. Am I missing something simple Or does this SKU not support export

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,

The item should appear under the Save All menu item. VSTS does support it. You can try running devenv /resetuserdata if it's not there (potentially some addin removed it).

Hope that helps,
Anson

I also have this same problem.  Running devenv /resetuserdata did not bring the menu back.  I am running VSTS with SP1.  Also, I don't have any add-ins installed.  This is a fairly clean machine that I loaded in December with Vista Ultimate.

Yeah running devenv /resetuserdata didn't bring back the export option. Although there were some other annoying side effects. Do I need to install a different SKU I'd figure VS Team Suite would cover just about everything so it should certainly have Export to Template.

Thanks,

Jeff

Same problem in VS2005 Professional. Try this:

1. Click the Tools->Customize... menu item.

2. On the Commands tab, choose File in the Categories list and look for the Export Template... item in the Commands list.

3. Drag the Export Template... list item onto the File menu and drop it anywhere in the dropdown menu.

Hope this helps.

I have found and used this solution from another Google search, however I am more concerned about the cause of problem since it could indicate that there is some larger issue to worry about (how many other menu items are missing what other functionality is disabled etc.)
