    Unable to install Pro on Visual Studio 2017

    When I double-click on the GhostDoc Pro.v5.5.17070.VS2017.Extension.vsix file to install to Visual Studio Professional 15.1 26403.7, there's a split-second cursor blip and then nothing happens. I've rebooted. I've downloaded again. Nothing I seem to do helps.

    Re: Unable to install Pro on Visual Studio 2017

    Hello Greg,

    Can you please check for me if you have GhostDoc installed in Programs and Features? If so, please uninstall it there and try the VSIX again,

    Please see Troubleshooting VSIX installation issues for details.

    Thanks! 


    Thank you,

    No, I do not have GhostDoc listed in my installed programs. This is a brand new virtual machine with a fresh installation of Visual Studio. I've never run anything other than the VSIX.

    Hi Greg,

    Normally, .vsix is associated with VSIXInstaller. By default it is located at c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\<edition>\Common7\IDE\VSIXInstaller.exe
    So, try the following:

    • Open a CMD Window
    • Go to Common7\IDE folder of your VS 2017 installation
    • CD c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\<edition>\Common7\IDE
    • Execute the installer passing your VSIX file name as parameter: VSIXInstaller.exe <path>\GhostDoc Pro.v5.5.17070.VS2017.Extension.vsix.

    The installer should now start the installation process for your VSIX extension. Hope this helps.


    Thank you,

    Re: Unable to install Pro on Visual Studio 2017

    Seems, it is a bug in Visual Studio 2017 when Build Tools are installed. Not only you experienced the same problem.
    Thank you,
