Unable to Add New Project using VS2010 Pro - Windows 7


Hi, I am having trouble to create the new project using the VS2010 Professional.

I followed the tutorial to set up Cocos on Windows 7.

When I try to install the templates I get the “Error: Cannot copy file (Permission denied)”. It is the same even if I ran it as administrator or from the cmd prompt.

I am using Cocos version 2.1beta3-x-2.1.1.

I also tried unblocking the html/1033 files, but nothing seems to work, and I can not add a new project.

Can any one help me on this?


Hi, If you are having trouble installing 2dx templates you can try the following steps.

  1. Download the attached file, extract it.
  2. open the file CCAppWiz.win32.vsz
  3. Now check for Param="ABSOLUTE_PATH , edit this path according to your cocos2d-x folder (mine is located at D:2d-2.1beta3-x-2.1.0\cocos2d-2.1beta3-x-2.1.0\template\msvc\CCAppWiz.win32)
  4. Save this file.
  5. Now copy Cocos2d-x folder , CCAppWiz.win32.ico, CCAppWiz.win32.vsdir and CCAppWiz.win32.vsz form cocostemplate.
  6. Go to C:Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\vcprojects and paste the copied content.
    7)Restart Visual studio, and you should see the option for new cocos2d-x project:)



It worked perfectly!
