Finding the WIF SDK Visual Studio Project Templates

If you are looking for the Windows Identity Foundation SDK Visual Studio Project Templates, you can find them here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\Web\CSharp\1033
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ProjectTemplates\Web\CSharp\1033

Extracting the .zip files and examining the contents can be useful in determining how to create your own WIF-based Visual Studio project templates.  If you have noticed, the WIF-based Visual Studio project templates installed by the WIF SDK also automatically run the FedUtil wizard in the background.

You will find this within the .vstemplate file:

      Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tools.VS, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35, processorArchitecture=MSIL

You can then utilize this content in your own WIF-based Visual Studio project templates by manually editing the resultant .vstemplate files.
