    Hi All,

    I am using VS 2012.  Unable to publish to, When I click publish it displays error " The publishing extension not installed which is required to publish. You can install from link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=208120 "

    I tried to repair VS 2012 as per one of the article but didn't work. Any suggestions.

    Hi Chait,

    Accroding to your description,as far as I think,you could reinstall the following items to your GAC using the following commands from the vs command line run as an administrator:

    gacutil -i "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Web Tools\Publish\Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.Publish.dll"  
    gacutil -i "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Web Tools\Publish\Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.Internal.Contracts.dll"

    Best regards,

    Yijing Sun
