A lot of people may still have this issue I fixed it by simply creating a folder named VIsual C# in Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ProjectTemplates

In ProjectTemplates directory I noticed the folder didn't exist and the folder is what the installer is looking for and wants to install the templates to that folder. It is an easy fix instead of messing with registry entries or anything else someone tells you to do to fix this. This worked for me I hope it helps anyone else confused

If @TickyAnarch 's solution doesn't work for you and you are on a multi-user machine and are not using the Admin account for daily work:

  1. Create the folder structure for the Admin account: in C:\Users\\Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#.
  2. Install MonoGame and the template (it should no longer be grayed out).
  3. Copy the Visual C# folder from the admin account over to your own user at the same path.
  4. Start Visual Studio, create a new project and you should see the templates.
