Description

After installing Visual Studio 2012 RTM on top of Visual Studio 2012 RC and creating a new ASP.Net Empty Web Application project, I am unable to add a New Web Form to my project.  When attempting to add a new Web Form, I receive the error message: "Could not find a part of the path ....\WebForm.zip\WebForm.vstemplate"

I have experienced a similar problem adding a class, saying the following error:

Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache\Web\CSharp\1033\Class.zip\Class.vstemplate'.

I applied the workaround to rename the folder from Class to Class.zip and noticed that this error only occurs when you try to add a class while the website is currently running. When I stopped the debugger it then went back to looking for the path "....\1033\Class\Class.vstemplate" (no.zip).

Also for reference I previously had 2012RC installed and now have 2012RTM

Nice job Microsoft. The RC expires in 8 days. Any chance you can fix this before thousands of people suffer the wrath? Oh, wait, you can't reproduce it, so the problem doesn't exist. No real company tells a customer that line of bull.

Right after installing Visual Studio 2012 RTM on top of Visual Studio 2012 RC one week ago, everything was fine. Yesterday, I updated the help system (using the "Help Content Manager") and also updated VS as recommended by some automatic update wizard.
Concerning the ItemTemplatesCache folder, I see no foldernames ending on .zip, neither under ItemTemplatesCache nor under ItemTemplates (from where the copy will be taken to (re)create ItemTemplatesCache on calling "devenv /installvstemplates" (... I suppose...). Also I stated, that the folder's modification date is exactly the time, when I performed the help system update.

ProjectTemplates are still working fine.
