VS 2017 : The components for communicating with FTP servers are not installed. Works fine with VS 2013. RRS feed

  • Question

  • First time with VS 2017, I have not been very far....

    Trying to publish my app, I had that "The components for communicating with FTP servers are not installed" error.
    Couple of guys having the same issue, no clear answer, none of them worked (idiot things like resintalling c++ redistributables looks to fix the issue for some guys, not for me).

    I tried to start from scratch with a blank project, same issue

    Publlishing works perfectly well when I use VS 2013.

    Until I have an answer, I am not going to buy VS 2017.....

  • Hi Vince,

    Thank you for your update.

    Please run the Visual Studio Installer and install the ".NET Core cross-platform development" workload:

  • Hi  vince_le_coach,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    For this issue, please try as below to troubleshoot:

    1) Have you installed Xamarin before, I did a research and find there are many community members have this issue after installing Xamarin.

    If so, please refer to this documentation to uninstall it cleanly.

    2) Run the vs_installer, usually it's under path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer

    If there is update, please update your installer first, then refer to following screenshot to perform a repair:

    3) Restart VS in safemode, this switch prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution.

    If any problem persists, please feel free to contact us.

    Best Regards,

  • Thanks for that.

    Unfortunately, I do not have any Xamarin installed.

    None of the ones you mention exists in the jnstalled programs.

    Seraching for" Xamarin" in C:\Program Files (x86) I have some in:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Web Tools\DNU

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\NuGetPackages\

    Starting in SafeMode does not change anything.

    That's really wierd, this silly problem stops the move to VS2017 enterprise wise....

  • Hi Vince,

    Could you please tell us your project type? I will check if I can reproduce this issue on my side.

    Besides, If the above doesn't help, you'd better use  http://aka.ms/vscollect to gather the installation logs. find vslogs.zip from %temp% folder. Please upload the file to Onedrive and share the link here. I will help you find the root cause according to the log file.

    Best Regards,
