  • Hi

    I have implemented one setup/install program which will install some extensions and project templates.

    Issue is :

    I am able to see project templates ,but Per-user extensions  are not visble in Visual stuio 2010/2012.

    I would like to provied below information for help:

    1)I verified extensions folder in AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions.It is avilable (UserExtensionsRootFolder)

    2) If i copy my extensions to ApplicationExtensionsFolder , i.e "Microsoft Visual Studio \Common7\IDE\Extensions", i can able to see  and it is working as expected.But i dont want this, i dont want to copy my extensions in to "ApplicationExtensionsFolder ".

    3)I refered two useful articles on installers
