Add New Item fix for Visual Studio 2005 and Telerik WinForms

If you're someone that still sometimes uses visual Studio 2005, and you are using Telerik Controls for WinForms, then you might have noticed if you add a new item to a project, then it always defaults to a RadForm, no matter what item you choose.

This will be fixed in one of the upcoming releases of the Telerik controls for Winforms but in the meantime, there is an easy way to fix this.

Move all of the files from the following folder (assuming Visual Studio is installed in it's default location):
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic\Windows Forms
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\VisualBasic
Open a Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt
Use the following command:
devenv /setup
Wait for the command to finish
