I recently installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 ultimate, because of one reason: The windows recent update to .Net framework 4.5 and other updates related to Visual Studio 2012, made my MVC 3 and 4 templates disappear off the New -> Website template list in Visual studio 2012 Pro. I never had this before, it's only the recent "Security" updates and few others all related to .Net framework 4.5 made this magical thing to happen. I don't understand why? Before the Windows "Security" and other updates I was able to see all the MVC templates (3,4), now only two Web option related to Razor 1 and Razor 2, and others few others completely unrelated to MVC. Where as now I can have the MVC 3,4 templates only available in the New -> Project option.

Please don't direct me to these links,


Because I have already tried those.

FYI: Re-installation, completely removed and re-installed a fresh copy, uninstalled all Visual studios 2008, 2010, 2012, and then re-installed one by one, and rebooted after every installation, Did not work.

Everything has to do with the Latest windows Update! Anyone else have this problem?
