  • Why do you need IVsExtensionManager?

    A single VSIX can contain more than one extension (package, Mef, etc) editing the .vsixmanifest, Assets section, New button, Type=..., Source=A project in the current solution...

  • Thanks for the reply.

    Currently, in my application I have set comma separated path for extension inclusion through setting tab. So, I download and install extension project into my application until it find right path.

    It is requirement that it may require to include functionality from different sources into my application. So, path will be different. I need to plug extensions. Is above solution is the only solution.
