Solution Templates

P: n/a
I'd like to make a Solution Template. I've made some Enterprise Templates but
they aren't what I expected and wished they were....I'd already be done if they
were :P

Anywho, my team of developers use the following structure for our web application

-- WebApplication
-- BLL
-- DAL
-- Schema
-- AdminWebApplication
Something's very tedious to create a new application because of the
amount of work involved in creating the directory structures....creating the
virtual directories in iis for the web apps....creating the BLL, DAL, and Schema
with the names BLL, DAL, and Schema...just to rename them to what we want them
called afterwards (we use our namespace design as the name for the projects)....

Is there a way to speed this up? I supposed I can mess around with the Blank
Solution template (which is blank btw heh), and try to get it to work...but with
all the renaming of the projects I need...and they need to be placed in a folder
that is not the same name as the projects themselves...can it be done? If not, I
can write an application that does this (give it the proper parameters and it
creates all the projects and adds them all to the solution, creating the virtual
directories and folders properly)...but darn, that would take a bit of time to
pull off eh...

Anywho, any help would be appreciated.

I've managed to create some new "Project" types for VB.Net. Now I can select the
"Web Application Project" and it will make all the sub-folders and add the
stylesheets I want in the project sub-folders along with some user-controls and
other nice little files in their proper folders without me doing much
work....just hope there is a way to do it for whole solutions....

Thanks in advance :)
