  • {FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC} is the GUID for C# project
  • {60dc8134-eba5-43b8-bcc9-bb4bc16c2548} is for project in WPF flavor package

So your ProjectTypeGuids is for a WPF C# project.

You could see the meaning of the different GUID in the register :

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Projects for ProjectTypeGuids
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Packages for packages reference by some project
