Error: this template attempted to load component assembly 'NuGet.VisualStudio.Interop, Version=*, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=*'

Error: this template attempted to load component assembly 'NuGet.VisualStudio.Interop, Version=*, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=*'. For more information on this problem and how to enable this template, please see documentation on Customizing Project Templates.

I was getting this error in newly released and installed Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate on my system when I tried to create any Web Application.




Possible Solution:

i) Open Visual Studio > Tools > Extensions and Updates > select 'NuGet Package Manager' and uninstall it.

ii) Open 'http://nuget.org' and you will see an 'Install NuGet' button, download it and install it on your system.

iii) Re-open the Visual Studio and now, this error will no longer visible to you.

  7. Error: this template attempted to load component assembly 'NuGet.VisualStudio.Interop...

    WTB a VS 2012 update... The package manager wasn't there for me either, but simply downloading it and installing it fixed the error. Thank you very much!

    (Including error message in response to hopefully bump this in the search results.)

  9. Worked!!! I actually installed it from the extensions window in Studio but that one produced the same error. So I uninstalled, then steps 2 & 3 and worked like a charm!

  11. I think Microsoft testers should put in more effort to nab these issues before they arise.
    They assume a perfect environment where all tools are already installed.
