To add VS 2013 support, download the file somewhere and rename to .zip
Then open it with some archiver and edit extension.vsixm anifest . Change <VisualStudio Version="11.0"> to <VisualStudio Version="12.0"> under <SupportedProdu cts>. Rename back to .vsix and you are ready to go.
if you have issue under Visual Studio 2010, please see solution in this link:

I can't get this to work for VS 2010 on Windows XP. I keep getting a 'path too long' error.

Any updates on a possible VB version? thx

I am planning to create a VB version too.
Although I haven't start creating the template yet, it is going to available for Visual Studio 2013 (here, on the Visual Studio gallery) while previous versions (2010, 2012 will be archived on the github repository.)

Nikos, did you ever get the VB version online?
March 07, 2015
Thank you for asking. Unfortunately, no. :( I've been busy with so many other stuff, that I've actually lost track of what the current state is, regarding Web API templates.

After installation, where do I find the new project type? What's it called?

Select 'ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application', then the 'Empty Web API' project template.

Ah, it's a template for a template :) Tricky.
