Installing python onto Mac version of visual studio

    Question

  • Hi,

    I've just grabbed the latest beta of Visual Studio for Mac and all I want to do is install the python extensions but I'm just going around in circles.

    The instructions I've read suggest the {shift}{applekey}p will open the addons window and I should just be able to select the python extensions file but it just doesnt work.

    I realise this is still in Beta so I wondered if anyone know if the process has changed.

    Cheers

    Andy

  • Hi FuzzyDruid,

    According to the description for Python Tools for Visual Studio, it only statement that it could install for Visual Studio 2015, VS2013, VS2012 and VS2010. It doesn't mentioned that it is support Visual Studio for Mac.

    And I also try download this tool on Mac which installed Visual Studio for Mac. When I open Visual Studio -> Extensions menu, it could not find this tool no matter from Extension Gallery nor from local .msi file in Extension Manager.

    So I'm afraid that Python Tool is not support Visual Studio for Mac at present.

    Best Regards,
