Creating a Project from existing files in Python



We are starting with Python Tools for VS.

We would like to start by migrating a project I developed in the university and get it working and, maybe, to enhance it since with VS we have more tools at hand.

But, the problem is that when I attemp to start by using the menu path File/New/Project from existing code/ there is no Python option in the type of project drop box as supposed to be, accordingly to the Youtube video , that I intent to follow.

I have PTVS tools installed ,and I already tested the installation with the "hello world" project.

And below is part of the diagnostics information for my PTVS installation.

What is the problem? How can I create a new Python project from existing files?

Thank You in advance.

Best regards.

Please post on, as we are no longer actively monitoring this site.

That said, you found a very old video and we've improved that functionality since then, but had to move the entry point. You'll find it at the top of the list of new Python projects when creating a project.
