Greetings -

 

As an experiment to see what an AS template does, or does not do, I created one. It did NOT do what I wanted, so I deleted all of the parts of the template, as far as I have been able to determine. I THOUGHT everything was OK at that point.

 

Just now, I opened AS, intending to create a new project. In the list of project types in the middle of the New Project window, there is an entry for that template that I do not want. 

 

How can I get rid of it? I could find almost nothing in AS Help about Project Templates.

 

Many thanks

Jim

Remember that Atmel Studio inherits this from Visual Studio 2015: LMGTFY

Thanks, Morten -

 

But that really did not help. I have trashed the template zip file so there is nothing more to "modify". Also, none of that discussed deleting a template, only modifying.

 

And, sorry for not using my Google-fu adequately. I had no way of knowing that feature was inherited from Visual Studio.

 

I did follow through some of the StackOverflow topics. One suggested removing in AS>Tools>Extensions and Updates; nothing there. I FINALLY did figure it out, though. With that hint, I systematically went through the Tools menu. In Tools>Options>General and under Projects>General, I found a file path to "User Project Templates Location". I used WindowsExplorer to go to that directory and found the miscreant template entry. Trashed it. All done.
