I hope you are well. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We have tested the DNN module development template on Visual Studio Express 2013 for Web (also shown in attached image below) and the DNN development template is working fine.
Can you please tell us the exact Visual Studio Express version you are using? If you are already using Visual Studio Express 2013 for Web please make sure that you have installed the updates and try again.
We look forward to hear your feedback and assist your further to resolve this issue.
