  1. Change the installed template file by:
a. find the template: e.g. c:\Users[UserName]\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ProjectTemplates[Visual Basic]\

b. Extract the file ProjectName.webproj from the zip file

c. Edit this file, remove the 1 null byte from it to make it totally empty

d. Update this file for the zip file (e.g. in windows 7, you can just drag/drop the new file to the zip folder)

It work for me.
