Visual Studio 2008 Test Item Templates Missing

This week my current project decided to start using Visual Studio Team Test for manual UI test.  So, naturally someone had to write the test, but we didn’t have Visual Studio Team Tester Edition installed.  After installing it, which looked good, when I went to add a new “Manual Test (Word Format) none of the new Item Templates where there. 

After a little searching I can across this post from 2007 that said to run  the following to correct it.

   1:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE>devenv.exe /setup

From the post they believed that the issue was that the Item Template cache was not getting updated.  Running devenv.exe /Setup forces Visual Studio to merge the resource metadata that describes, menus, toolbars, and command groups from the VSPackages.  Evidently it also updates the Item Template Cache as well.

All is good and I am off created Manual Test now.
