Manually install VS extension

Jump to solution

I installed 19.1.0 today, and it doesn't seem like it successfully installed the VS 2017 plugin. I cant figure out how to modify the installation to remove and reinstall the plugin. Is that possible, without uninstalling and reinstalling all of Fortify?

So I had to go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall 19.1. During the uninstall I chose to remove just the plugin. 

Then I tried the installer to install it again. It failed again. 

While the dialog box was up, I found the vsix installer in the Fortify app directory. I copied it and manually installed it and that worked. 

That was entirely too difficult.

Looking at the Fortify Marketplace, I think the extension doesn't have a new version.


Data, or do not.

Whic one of these three did you mean precisely?

  • SCA plugin for VS IDE:  install option found within the SCA Installation Wizard  (Do you have the supported VS IDE installed?)

Anthony, 

I appear to be facing a similar issue as you, but I can't seem to get your solution to work. When you reference the "vsix installer" I assume you are referring to "FortifyPackage.vsix"? I copied this file over and double-clicked it, but it did not do anything. I additionally ran the below command from the VS Command Prompt, but still no luck. Am I approaching your solution incorrectly? 

Command: VSIXInstaller /a /q /skuVersion:15.0 /skuName:Pro "C:\Location\To\FortifyPackage.vsix"

Thanks,
Jim

Please disregard my previous post. It looks like just running the below command from the VS Command Prompt has done the trick. I agree with Anthony that this required way too many hoops to jump through to get this working, but I am glad he found a solution I could replicate. 

Command: VSIXInstaller Path/To/FortifyPackage.vsix

Thanks for the trick. It solved the problem.

In my case, I found FortifyPackage.vsix in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\fortify-installer\VS2017

Best regards.
