Another question about cancelling the IWizard when creating a project, this time in the StackOverflow forum that I am visiting now quite often, has prompted me to create a project template with a wizard using the IWizard interface, as explained in the MSDN documentation How to: Use Wizards with Project Templates. The sample certainly doesn’t show how to cancel the wizard and the IWizard interface methods don’t seem to offer that possibility so apparently it is not possible. However, it is possible in a non-intuitive way: there are two exceptions, WizardCancelledException and WizardBackoutException that the wizard can throw to return to before showing the Add Project dialog, or to that dialog, respectively. There seems to be some cleanup to do, as Rory Primrose explains in his post Pitfalls of cancelling a VSIX project template in an IWizard. You may also find useful a long explanation by Ron Petrusha about Developing Visual Studio Project Wizards, which I will add to the Articles section about templates of this site. And remember that if you want full control of the wizard you can always use the old COM-based IDTWizard interface instead.
