extension version info RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm developing an extension which provides a menu item and tool window for VS 2017.  I made some updates and built a new version.  I exited studio and double-clicked the .vsix file to install.

    The installer refused, saying I already had that extension installed.

    So I figured it must be the version #.  I tried bumping the assembly version # but that had no effect.

    I see that if I open Tools >> Extensions and scroll to find mine, it shows v1.2.  So clearly in the past I must have figured out how to bump the version #, but now I can't find it.

    In fact, I can't find 1.2 anywhere in the project files!

    Can someone point me to where I set the version info for the package such that, when I have a new version, I can update the extension as opposed to having to uninstall and install it?
