Visual Studio 2015 Extensions and Updates Manager exits with message error when searching

    Question

  • I have been stuck with this error for a month now. Every time I try to search for any extension in Extensions and Updatesmanager, I get this error message.

    I created a video for the problem :

    <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="341" mozallowfullscreen="" src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/183024296" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="640"></iframe>

    Here is the activity log:

    I tried to repair VS, reinstall it with no luck. I hope someone could guide me if possible as I can't afford fresh windows install at the moment.

    Thanks.

  • Hi W. El-Badry,

    This forum is to discuss and ask questions about extending and integrating, as your issue is more related to the Visual Studio itself, we help you move it to the Visual Studio General Questions forum for better support.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Cole Wu
