    Default ArcGIS Extensibility Issue. I'm sure simple fix.

    I have Visual Studio 2010 and I have installed the 1.0.1 Silver light viewer for ArcGIS. I wanted to try and create some add-ins but I am having issues. I've installed both of these:

    ArcGISExtensibility2_4__en
    ArcGISSilverlightViewer1_0_1_x64_en

    However, when I go to VS2010 and click on File/New/Project/Other Languages/Visual C#/Silverlight/ I only have these options:

    Silverlight Application
    Silverlight Class Library
    Silverlight Navigation Application

    I do not see anything ESRI. What am I doing wrong?

    Here is a screenshot so you can see where the template can be found. If you expand silverlight and do not see the ESRI Viewer option than I am not sure what is going on. I have the ESRI Silverlight API installed. The Silverlight Viewer Installation guide doesn't say it is needed but i never tried without.

    Hi Michael,

    To start, can you uninstall and reinstall the Extensibility SDK? Also, the ArcGIS API for Silverlight is included when you install the Extensibility SDK, so you don't need to install that separately.

    Katy: Which one of these do you want me to uninstall? Do you want me to use the add/remove to do this?

    Hi Michael,

    Go ahead and uninstall both the ArcGIS Extensibility 2.2 and ArcGIS Extensibility SDK for Silverlight 2.4. Use Add/Remove programs for this. Then reinstall the ArcGIS Extensibility SDK for Silverlight 2.4.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Hi Michael,
    Do you happen to have your Visual Studio in a non-default location, instead of C:\Program Files\?
    If so, then take a look at http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/481...t-Installation .
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Michael,

    As mentioned by Gerardo, is there any chance your Visual Studio installation is not in the default location? This is a known issue, and if it is the case we can help you with the workaround.

    Yes I think it is. How can I fix this in as few as steps as needed?

    E:\Visual Studio 2010 VB Web\Silverlight

    Also I am heading to the ESRI conference and was hoping they might have just a training session for the Silverlight viewer. I see they have one for Silverlight. Will that be useful to me. I'm deciding between Silverlight and Flex right now. They both have their good and bad qualities. I like the ease of use of Silverlight to do little things to the layers like the popups/symbology etc. . . I just wish I could do a bookmark like I can in Flex to have the user be able to zoom to an area quickly. I guess another post.

    Hi Michael,

    Just as a start, which version of Visual Studio do you have installed? Supported versions are Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. I'm only asking since your path is "Visual Studio 2010 VB Web".

    Okay great. So, here is what you need to do:

    1. Copy the ESRI Viewer folder (contains EsriViewer.zip) from the install location, probably "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\CSharp\Silverlight\" to the matching location of your Visual Studio 2010 install location (<your install location>\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\CSharp\Silverlight\).
    2. Follow the instructions here: How To: Restore Default Project Templates.

    Let us know how that goes.

    Also, you may be interested in watching the Dev Summit video Configuring and Customizing ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight from Rich Zwaap.

    I think that might have fixed it.

    Thanks looking foward to

    Will this class at the conference cover the viewer?

    Building Web Applications Using ArcGIS API for Silverlight/WPF
    Using ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), you can build engaging web applications that incorporate ArcGIS services. This hands-on seminar explains how to use ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF and the Silverlight platform to efficiently create high-performing web mapping applications that meet the needs of the intended audience. Learn about the components available in ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF; how to write code for a Silverlight-based application; and how to incorporate GIS services that allow end users to visualize, query, and edit geographic data. While this seminar focuses on functionality available with ArcGIS 10.1 services, many concepts are applicable to ArcGIS 10.0 and 9.3.1 services.

    Level: Intermediate

    Prerequisites: Attendees should have experience developing applications for the Silverlight platform using XAML and C# or Visual Basic .NET, accessing services using the ArcGIS Services Directory, configuring web mapping applications using ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight, and authoring web maps using ArcGIS.

    Audience: Web developers and GIS professionals who want to create Silverlight-based web applications that include GIS services and functionality.

    Fee: $495.00

    This class/presentation is more geared toward those who want to create their own custom Silverlight application with the ArcGIS API for Silverlight, as opposed to configuring and customizing the ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight. I don't believe this course will specifically cover creating add-ins for the ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight.

    Can we get a class for the conference that does this? I would love to know as much about the viewer as possible. I would sign up today if you make the class available. I'm shocked you guys have not done this already.

    Hi Michael,

    Take a look at Rich Zwaap's presentation from the Developer Summit, Configuring and Customizing ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight, as I think it will actually help to answer many of your questions. I suspect he will also be doing this presentation at the User Conference. Thanks for the suggestion on putting together a class, though, as we can keep that in mind for the future.
