This Zip file contains a .VSI file will enable the VWG templates in Visual Studio 8 and 9 (2005 and 2008).

In order to install the templates you should just double-click the VSI file and go with the installation.
(The templates are not signed but it should not cause any concern).

In case you use VS 2008 (.NET 3.5) the configuration handler is set manually, this means you should make sure that after creating a new VWG project the key:

<configSections>
            <section name="WebGUI" type="Gizmox.WebGUI.Common.Configuration.ConfigHandler,            
                Gizmox.WebGUI.Common, Version=2.0.5701.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=263fa4ef694acff6" />
    </configSections>

Is changed to:

<configSections>
            <section name="WebGUI" type="Gizmox.WebGUI.Common.Configuration.ConfigHandler,            
                Gizmox.WebGUI.Common, Version=3.0.5701.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=263fa4ef694acff6" />
    </configSections>

and set the HTTP Handler's assembly version:

<httpHandlers>
      <add verb="*" path="*.wgx"               
             type="Gizmox.WebGUI.Server.Router,Gizmox.WebGUI.Server,Version=2.0.5701.0,
            Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=3de6eb684226c24d" />
             ...
    </httpHandlers>

To:

<httpHandlers>
      <add verb="*" path="*.wgx"               
             type="Gizmox.WebGUI.Server.Router,Gizmox.WebGUI.Server,Version=3.0.5701.0,
            Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=3de6eb684226c24d" />
             ...
    </httpHandlers>

Also, you should make sure that the VWG assemblies references refer to the 3.0 dlls and not some 1.1 or 2.0 dlls.
