I have the given Exception from Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 when inserting a Silverlight Templated Control (Silverlight4 Project). Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004005 (E_FAIL). VS is running on Windows 8.
A class file is added to the project but no template.

The problem still exists.

After seeing that visual state editing is not supported in VS 2012 Update 2 and now these problems are giving me some doubts about the usability of VS 2012 for Silverlight development. A pitty cause i like VS 2012 and in our company meanwhile we avoid installing VS 2010 on developer machines.

To fix "Silverlight Templated Control" item template you must manually add to your project the "Themes" directory and in it add the generic.xaml file. That should help. It looks like a problem with permissions to create this directory or file.
