I getting a failure during the WCSF install. A dialog box appears, titled, "Installer Information", with the message, "The project factory Web is not registered, template C:\Program Files\Microsoft Web Client Factory\WCSF Guidance Package\Templates\Solutions\Projects\WebProject\Web.UI.vstemplate cannot be installed.

New VPC with fresh Win 2003 Server R2 as application server.
Team Edition for Developers
Ajax Extensions
All patches and service packs installed.

Freshly downloaded all the dependencies given on (Installing WCSF page). Installed in the order listed on that page.

Note prior to attempting the WCSF install I installed EntLib 2.0, CAB and SCSF.

Uninstalled everything to do with WCSF and SCSF, then tried WCSF install again. Same failure.

Anyone have some advice beyond starting the vpc build from scratch again.

The Web Service Factory needs the Visual Web Developer option of your Visual Studio to be installed. This option is useful for creating ASMX services with the Web Service Software Factory.

Here is a link that may be useful:
