    Hi,

    but the problem I'm getting is when i double-click the .vsix file to install it, nothing happens,

    Did you download Entity Framework Power Tools from this site(https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/72a60b14-1581-4b9b-89f2-846072eff19d)?

    Please download the Entity Framework Power Tools, and follow the installation guide in the article to install it into VS 2015.

    Please let me know if you need any help.

    With regards,

    Angie

    HI,

    minedun6

    Please I just twice that I did the manipulation just as you said and nothing happens, still.

    I researched relevant documents about installing EF Power Tools into VS2015, it seems that we need open the extension.vsixmanifest file in a text editor, and find the Supported Products section.change the version to 14.0.

    Best regards,

    Angie

    Yes, that's the page i downloaded from and yes I did the manipulation correctly and just as I said earlier, when i try to run the installation of the EFPowerTools, nothing occurs which leaves me speechless so far.

    Thx again for your Answer Angie.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    when i try to run the installation of the EFPowerTools, nothing occurs which leaves me speechless so far.

    Do you check the installation tips in comments area?such as:

    1. download the package
    2. change .vsix to .zip and unpack it
    3. open the extension.vsixmanifest file with any text editor
    4. find following section
          <VisualStudio Version="12.0">
            <Edition>Pro</Edition>
          </VisualStudio>
    5. copy and paste it behind and change the value of  "Version" attribute to "14.0"
    6. save
    7. pack these files to zip again.
    8. rename the file extension to .vsix

    Please check whether it helps.

    With Regards,

    Angie

    Maybe I need to re-install VS2015.
