Not sure if this will help or not. I see that BTDF installer put the file in these two places on my virtual machine:
"c:\program files\Microsoft Visual Studio 7\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalkProjectTemplate5_0.zip"
"c:\program files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalkProjectTemplate5_0.zip"
However, I don't see it in either VS2005 or VS2008 IDE under the "Add new project" (Note: I'm running BT2006/R2 on this machine, but have VS2008 for WCF web service and win apps).
I noticed that all the templates from Microsoft are zips, but they are located in 1033 (code # for English I think) subdirectories. I tried copying the above .zip to several other places, closing Visual Studio and re-opening, but never could get it
to appear in the 'Add new project' window. I didn't think there were registry settings or anything involved, so I'm not sure why putting the file in the various directories didn't work. I even tried putting it under know locations such as
CSharp/Workflow, and I tried creating called "BizTalk Projects" and putting it under 1033 under that directory.
Based on my "Tools/Options" settings for "Project and Solutions/General" / "Visual Studio user project template locations" I also tried putting it these three directories with no luck:
"c:\Documents and Settings\z_btsadm\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\Workflow\1033\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalkProjectTemplate5_0.zip"
"c:\Documents and Settings\z_btsadm\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\Workflow\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalkProjectTemplate5_0.zip"
"c:\Documents and Settings\z_btsadm\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\DeploymentFrameworkForBizTalkProjectTemplate5_0.zip"
