Event log display following warning:

The global template information is out of date. Regenerate the templates by running 'devenv.exe /installvstemplates' or reinstalling the application.  Note: corrective action requires Administrator privileges.

Things to try:

Run devenv /installvstemplates as suggested in Event Viewer.
Then Run devenv /resetsettings.

If this do not help then try to run Visual Studio Repair using program & features (Install/Unstall).

Temporary Fix: Manually copy the templates

FROM
“<VisualStudioInstallDir>\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates” 
TO
“My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ItemTemplates”.
