At some point in your early Sitecore career you will likely encounter the following error:
Perhaps you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Sitecore Rocks but still had the issue? Here’s what happened in my battle with troubleshooting.
So I finally went and found the Sitecore.Rocks.TemplateWizard.dll and copied it to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies
If you have trouble finding where those assemblies are then look where the extension was installed. For me it was starting here
Once there I browsed the directories until I found it.
(Others I know have had to copy to Visual Studio 10 and 11 as well)
These steps did fix the issue and allowed the template wizard to run when creating a layout.
If you are still receiving other errors after this you may need to also bring in some other files. What was missing was a good number of other dlls:
- (and of course Sitecore.Rocks.TemplateWizard.dll)
After copying these out to the folder mentioned above and restarting Visual Studio, my issue was resolved. Hope that helps.
