I tried to create the Dnn Mvc Module by using the mvc module template in VS2015, but it shows quite a few errors:

such as: the type of namespace name "LocalizeString" does not exit in the namespace "Dnn";

The name "ViewBag" does not exist in the current content;  .. etc.

And when I try to add a controller or add a view, it always show the error below:

Error: There was an error running the selected code generator. 'The parameter is incorrect 

(Exception from HRESULT:0x80070057(E_INVALIDARG))'.

Does anyone have any idea about this problem?

Thanks.

I created a video of how to create the project using the template tonight, and to debug.

The LocalizeString type issues, don't prevent you from compiling and running the module, but do show up as an issue.

As for the problems adding a controller or a view, I am at a loss for that. Did you create the project in /desktopmodules/mvc/ModuleName?

Thank you Chris. Does this mean that the templates Joe Brinkman published before are now obsolete? I know you guys worked together on this.

Doesn't work to install the SOURCE ZIP of fresh module created with the new DNN 8 MVC template. The INSTALL ZIP installs fine  though.

Which version of the MVC module template did you use (my original template, the updated template from DNNSoftware, or the one from Chris Hammond)?  What directory did you use when creating your module?  It sounds like you didn't create your module in the Desktopmodules/MVC directory.  This directory contains a web.config file which sets up the proper base class for views. That base class is where the @dnn helper is wired up.  That is likely the root of your problems.
