Installing Visual Studio extension using MSI RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have msi that installs visual studio extension by coping the content of a VSIX in the Extension folder of the VS. I put  <InstalledByMSI>true</InstalledByMSI> in the manifest since I don't want the extension to be uninstalled/disabled from the Extension manger. When I run the MSI It copies the extension correctly but then when I run Visual Studio the extension doesn't exist. If I open the manifest xml file and remove InstalledByMSI tag everything is fine but the buttons for uninstalling and disabling can be used.

    How can I disable uninstall/disable buttons in the Extension Manager for my extension.
