Installing the C# Web part templates

Someone asked you where the Web part templates projects for Visual C# are. You said you didn't know. You mentioned something along the lines of "SharePoint is a different product." It's actually a download available from MS: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnspts/html/sharepoint_webparttemplates.asp. Installing it will then give you the Web part templates. Hope that helps someone out.
Like I said, SharePoint IS a different product. It must be installed on the server where those Web parts are going to run. In fact, Content Management Server also installs some templating features and new controls for ASP.NET development. However, neither is part of ASP.NET, therefore, the templates are not available out of the box. If you read right at the beginning of the link you sent, it says: "Applies to:

  • Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint™ Services and Web Parts
  • Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET"

    I didn't know SharePoint provided deep integration with VS.NET, however. Thanks for the tip!
