Missing Business Intelligence Types and Analysis Services Template

While following the tutorial on Analysis Services on MSDN:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms170208.aspx

I got stuck in item 3 in Creating Analysis Services Project
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms166989.aspx

I have SQL Server 2008, Developers' Edition
I have installed Analysis Services (and Reporting Services for future use) so that's not the problem.
- If you're not sure if you have that. Go to Start -> Programs -> Microsoft SQL Server-> SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio

If you have that they you have Analysis Services and you might be encountering the same problem I did. When trying to create my first Analysis Services Project, the Business Intelligence Type was missing and so was the Analysis Services Templates.

Solution:
In MS Visual Studio (BIDS) click on Tools -> Import and Export Settings

Import Selected Environment Settings
Yes, Save my current settings
highlight "Business Intelligence Settings" and click on Finish.

This will add the Business Intelligence projects to BIDS.
