I have recently been assigned a task to create an Item Template for web projects and embed in Visual Studio so that other developers can use it. Basically its a sort of generic Template, meaning that any Website or Web Application can add it in their project as a new Item.

I am following the blogs on msdn they do have articles on this but they create item templates from existing projects. They create a new Demo Project, select files they want to add as item templates then export them while choosing the Demo project. I don't need item templates for a specific project. I want the user to create a new website/web application then add my custom item template as a new item in their projects.

Please help me out on this...

I haven't tried this myself, but it should be just a matter of creating the files in the right place for VS to pick up.
If you have a look here: Adding your items to Visual Studio default files[^] and here: Create Visual Studio forms for items you frequently use[^] they should give you the basic idea - you will have to "play" a bit until you find the right folders, I suspect!
