I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get the Application Block Software Factory Guidance Packages working in VS 2005 Pro. When I run the initial setup for a new project, the Guidance script crashes when it tries to create the tests project. It says "The project type is not supported by this installation". From my understanding, VS Team edition is not required for these Guidance Packages. Here's my setup:

Visual Studio 2005 Pro SP1
.Net 3.0
GAX February 2008
Enterprise Library 3.1

Any ideas?

There are two project template flavors for each project type. In your case, you need to use the version without tests. Depending on your configuration, the "no tests" suffix on the template name might not be visible but IIRC a tooltip will show you the full template name.
