Reinstalling the Visual Studio 2015 and Later Add-in

When you update Web Connection the Web Connection Visual Studio 2015 and later Add-in will not be updated and in fact when it tries to install shows an error indicating that it couldn't install. This is nothing to worry about, except that the add-in is not actually re-installed.

In order to update the add-in you have to first remove it and then add it back in:

In Visual Studio:

  • Go to Tools | Extensions and Updates
  • Find the Web Connection Add-in
  • Click Uninstall

Then use Explorer:

  • Go to c:\wconnect\VisualStudio
  • Double-click the WebConnection-Addin.vsix
  • Follow the install dialog
