Unable to create projects. Project Wizard shows empty list




The above screen is the new project dialog, which will display a list from which the user can select and create a project. It happens that this list is empty in one case. (This is not a genuine bug but more of a de-prioritized use case). If you say WTF,  de-prioritize creating the project ? Absolutely no, we are not that stupid. It’s primarily because of the underlying shell’s that we support. Now we support project(s) for Isolated shell 2010 (en-US). But if you have installed any of other Isolated shell’s, this can happen. The workaround,



  • Delete the folder %localappdata%\Atmel\AtmelStudio\6.0\ProjectTemplatesCache_{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} delete all the files.
  • Delete the folder  <InstallDir>\projecttemplatescache
  • Go to the folder <InstallDir>\ProjectTemplates\CandCPP\1033. Cut all the files and paste them into <InstallDir>\ProjectTemplates\CandCPP.

Restart Studio Smile
