A lot:-)

There is e.g. no %ProjectName% in wizard.xml, while there is %{ProjectName} in
wizard.json. But you are using that, so that is probably not what is biting you.

What does not work for you? I could not figure that out based on your mail,

To debug wizards I recommend to set a keyboard shortcut (in
Tools>Options>Environment>Keyboard) to the Wizard.Inspect action.

You can then trigger the wizard you are curious about and trigger the
Wizard.Inspect action at any time the (JSON) wizard is running. That will get
you a page with all the variables the wizard knows at that point in time.

I found the Inspector a great help to debug problems with my wizards.
