This post is to report about my SecurityException error when creating a template solution after registering the RI2 guidance package and to validate Emanuel's reply to "How do I install the 22May Guidance package".

After I successfully Registered the SmartClientDevelopmentRI2 package, I received an error when I tried to create a new template soltuion by choosing File, New, Project, Guidance Packages, Smart Client Development(RI2) selecting the Light Weight Smart Client template to create a new project. I received the following SecurityException.

Information posted by Microsoft on the Connect site:

Locate the following file using Windows Explorer:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Guidance Automation Toolkit\Templates\Solutions\Projects\GuidancePackage\GuidancePAckage.xml

Open the properties for the file.

Find and click the "Unblock" button. If the Unblock button is not there, check the properties of your GP XML file and follow the same procedure.

That should take care of the problem.
