Could you do this?

  1. Uninstall T4 Toolbox using Control Panel
  2. Restart you machine
  3. Open Visual Studio command prompt and run the following command: devenv.exe /setup
  4. Open Visual Studio, create a new C# console application project.
  5. Select Project->Add New Item from the main menu
  6. Verify that Add New Item dialog doesn't contain the Code Generation folder.
  7. Close Visual Studio
  8. Install T4 Toolbox from command prompt using the following command line: msiexec /i t4toolbox.msi /lvx* install.log
  9. Open Visual Studio and verify that Add New Item dialog contains the Code Generation folder with items like File, Template, Generator, etc.
  10. If the installer reports the problem again, upload the install.log to this thread.

Therem is a my install log for T4 on MS Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
There are several errors in log, but Add New Item dialog contains the Code Generation folder and templates in it.
