Creating project '' project creation failed.
Im new to episerver and just installed episerver and suport for visual webdeveloper express. Trying to create a episerver project from vwd im getting the following error message:
object reference not set to an instance of an object. and the project creation failed!
Which EPiServer version? What OS are you running?
Check the system requirements for your environment.
You'll find installation guides for all versions in the Documentation section.
I am having the same issue using Windows 7, Visual Studo Express 2012 for Web, EPiServer Extension for VS Express downloaded from http://world.episerver.com/PageFiles/118012/EPiServerVsExtensionForExpressSKU.vsix, and EPiServer 7.5.
My environment is correct as far as I can tell (following http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/CMS/Get-started-with-CMS/1-Setting-up-your-development-environment/). VS Express is run as administrator, and I get the error no matter what type of EPiServer project I try to create (Web Forms or MVC), and no matter which .NET Framework version I select (4, 4.5, or 4.5.1).
I've also seen this. The solution was to install a site from deployment center, create a empty standard asp.net mvc site and copy the files from that to the site folder. So I didn't use the project templates at all.
