Webworks and Visual Studio 2008

Hi. I'm new to BlackBerry's, Java programming, and a host of other things, so I apologize for this post before I even begin.


I have Visual Studio 2008. I just downloaded and installed the BlackBerry Webworks Plug-In 2.5.1. I launch Visual Studio, go to File/New Project, and select BlackBerry from the Project Types. In the Visual Studio Installed Templates, I'm looking for BlackBerry Widget, but it's not there. What is there is Webworks Application.


How do I get the BlackBerry Widget to be in Installed Templates? I'm trying to follow along with a video that tells you how to creat a WebWorks application.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Jeff,


WebWorks = Widget


In Fall of last year Widgets were re-branded to WebWorks
