When you have Visual Studio LightSwitch 2010 (the released version) and Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011 (the Beta version) on the same machine, you may have a problem installing some extensions.

image

The problem is that it will only install in the Beta version of LightSwitch (Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011) not the released version (Visual Studio LightSwitch 2010).

image

The fix by Kostas Christodoulou is to fix the file association.

image

Right-click on the .vsix file and select Choose default program…

image

Click Browse.

image

Choose the file at (on a 32 bit computer):

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\VSIXInstaller.exe

image

Click OK.

image

It will now install in the released version of LightSwitch.

image

Note: to install extensions in the Beta version of LightSwitch, change the association back to Microsoft Visual Studio Version Selector.

Hello.
Do you know where the folder of installed LS extension (especially theme extension) is located?
