Can't download visual studio templates?

I mean i cannot even select any templates to download the program wont let me

Fixed! all i had to do was add a folder in:
C:\Users\ User\Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ProjectTemplates
called: Visual C#

I don’t get why this is an issue, I suspect it is because of non-elevation when installing or faulty rights access in user systems… just never had it happen to me… and I have done at minimum 30 installs…

This needs to be fixed at some point…

Really dumb that I didn’t check this out before. It was actually extremely simple to fix this issue. Just set up a pull request!
The problem was simply that the installer checked if the Visual C# folder existed as one of the conditions to enable installing the templates there :sweat_smile:
