This extension is already installed to all applicable products

May 2, 2012 at 8:47 PM

When I run the vsix, I get a simple dialog that says:

"This extension is already installed to all applicable products."

I did use this configuration section designer a while back, and I can't recall if I got a new PC before or after.

For the life of me I cannot find the config section project type template in Visual Studio 2010 or 2008 (which are both installed).

Maybe I need to uninstall this vsix and reinstall it?  But how do I uninstall, I can't find anything on my PC for this, but I probably don't know what I'm looking for.

Please help!

I was able to fix my problem.

I finally found and deleted this extension from:

AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions

I installed again and it worked.  Technically I installed from the command line using the admin option, though it very well may have worked without this.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE>VSIXInstaller.exe /a "C:\mypath\ConfigurationSectionDesigner.DslPackage.vsix"

This might have been caused due to ext version not being incremented between releases. I make sure to do this now, and the extension updates correctly without requiring an uninstall.
