Install Monogame on Visual Studio 2017

Question:
I am trying to install Monogame on VS 2017 however the option on the installer for VS 2017 is greyed out, even though I have VS 2017 installed. I also have VS 2015 and VS 2010 however I am not sure if it is those that are causing a problem. The version of MonoGame is 3.6.0.1625 and I currently have the directory: C:UsersMY NAMEDocumentsVisual Studio 2017TemplatesProjectTemplatesVisual C#

Please help thanks


Answer:
This problem often happens when your templates are in the wrong directory. The path you provided seems to be the right one tho.

Are your VS2015 templates in the C:UsersMY NAMEDocuments directory aswell ? If not, try to move your VS2017 templates to the same directory as your VS2015 templates.

If those two are both in C:UsersMY NAMEDocuments, look into DocumentsVisual Studio 2017TemplatesProjectTemplates and try to find the Visual C# folder. If it is missing add a new folder with this name and try again.
