Trouble loading templates in to VS 2008

Hey guys, I've downloaded the templates and tried opening them but I keep getting a dialog saying " one or more content items contained within the .vscontent file cannot be installed because the correct version of the content installer component cannot be found."

I've tried looking for the vscontentinstaller.exe and failed. I've also tried opening them in both VS 2010 and 2012.

If someone could help me, that'd be grateful.

Thank You :)

I have not seen this error before and have successfully installed the templates on VS2008 and VS2010. Be sure to unblock the downloaded zip file (file->properties->unblock).
