This post explain how to create a template for ICE and clarify any questions you might have. Templates are functionally just like answer files, but are meant to represent some functionality or subset that you would like to have available or share to build upon. To create a template, create an answer file as you normally would, then save it in the Templates folder (or any subfolder under it) of the distribution share in which you created it. The distribution share pane will then refresh and show your template in the pane. Let’s start this walkthrough by downloading the various Windows Live templates from the Application Templates web site (x86): Windows Live Toolbar, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Windows Live Messenger. Extract all of these files, and then in ICE, choose File -> Import -> Import Template… from the menu and choose the one of the files, and repeat for each (sorry we didn’t make this multi-selectable!).
