Error "The project type is not supported by this installation." while creating ASP.NET AJAX enabled Web Application

Last night I downloaded and installed ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0 on my home computer. When AJAX extensions are installed, ASP.NET AJAX Enabled Web Application project template is also installed.
I tried creating a new project by selecting ASP.NET AJAX Enabled Web Application and I got an error some thing like below.

The project file 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\.....\AJAXTest.vbproj' cannot be opened.
The project type is not supported by this installation.

Upon Googling a bit, I found that we need to install Visual Studio 2005 Web Application project.and VS 2005 hot fix to support Visual Studio 2005 Web Application project. The hot fix should be installed first.
Please follow the link to learn more.
