PTVS not installing correctly in VS2012 Pro

description

I've followed the installation instructions on Python Tools for Visual Studio Installation, installed both CPython and IronPython and still the Python template does not show up in File->New Project->Other Languages.

I don't know if this is related but the following warning messages are showing up in the VS11 ActivityLog.xml when starting VS:

What is causing PTVS to fail to load correctly? Is there any way to diagnose warnings of this type?

Are there any other issues besides these warnings? Does it work correctly and are there project templates available?

Sorry, you said the templates do not show up.

If you click on the Tools menu, can you see a "Python Tools" entry?
