Vsix deinstallation problem. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I use a vsix to install a project template. When a new project is created for first time the ziped project template is unziped in a folder in the extension folder. Here comes my problem - if this unziped folder exists I must restart the studio when I uninstall the vsix. I want to just close it after deinstallation, install the new version of the vsix and run the studio again. The problem is that if I have the unziped folder the new version of the vsix installs it self in the existing extension folder which then causes problem with the deinstallation - "A file can't be created if it already exists.". So my question - is it possible to control the unziping process, I mean the folder where the project template is unziped

    Thank you.

  • You must restart VS as part of the uninstallation process.

    To "just close it after desintallation" is not an option.
