Remove the FrameworkVersion element in the vstemplate file from another folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Office SharePoint\1033\\SharePointGlobalResource.vstemplate

After that, close the VS, run devenv /setup, and re-open the VS.

Hi Alex,

From bug perspective, we've fixed it in next release, so I resolved the bug as Fixed. I'll keep tracking this issue though until you find a workaround.

Hi Alex,

Thanks again for opening the bug to us. We've investigate this fixed the issue in next release of the tools. Meanwhile, please try the following workaround for your Beta2 bits: Remove the FrameworkVersion element in the following template file (also in bold below): C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplatesCache\CSharp\Office SharePoint\1033\\SharePointGlobalResource.vstemplate
