I don't use "archetype:generate" command.  I create maven projects from

you may create one pom.xml file as following sample:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<project xmlns=""
  <name>ConsoleApplication1 : ConsoleApplication1</name>
  <dependencies />

I was using the latest 1.4 version.

So I installed the latest 1.5 version.

When I try to create a new project from and archetype I get:

Presumably, the archetype is not in my local repository. Why didn't the .msi
put it there for me?

Is there some other repository I need to configure in my Maven settings? 
Why aren't the necessary NPanday pieces in Maven Central?

As an aside, I don't have any love for Visual Studio, and right now I am

I can live without the IDE integration for now, and just use NPanday from
the command line.

Cheers, Eric
