    Cool How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    My actual target is to install The Microsoft HLS SDK for windows phone and windows store applications.

    According to Microsoft HLS SDK Developer Guide v1.0



    It says

    The Microsoft HLS SDK (referred to as the SDK henceforth) is a set of components to assist you (the developer) in building Windows Store applications that can play back streaming video delivered over the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol.

    Hence to install HLS SDK It says we need to run Microsoft.HLSClient.Setup.vsix package from command line

    How to go to command line optons and install or run ?

    I have installed both


    Visual studio express 2012 for windows 8

    visual studio express 2012 fro windows phone

    please help me


    I tried using nuget package manager console but says invalid commands etc

    PM> Install-Package
    cmdlet Install-Package at command pipeline position 1
    Supply values for the following parameters:
    Id: Microsoft.HLSClient.Setup.vsix
    Install-Package : Unable to find package 'Microsoft.HLSClient.Setup.vsix'.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Install-Package

    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: ( [Install-Package], InvalidOper
    ationException

    Re: How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    All search hits for your question find various cross-posts on other sites (Microsoft/MSDN, StackOverflow, perhaps some more), so there may be some typo or misinterpretation in your question.
    Searching for vsix, various hits can be found otherwise, like http://superuser.com/questions/73675...-visual-studio.

    Re: How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    Visual Studio Express Editions don't support VSIX extensions. You would need a commercial version like VS2013 Pro in order to be able to use that package.

    see: http://superuser.com/questions/67793...o-express-2013

    Cool Re: How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    Yes I have tried to follow a suggestion from your link http://superuser.com/questions/73675...-visual-studio

    The 8th one

    i.e

    The above answers didn't help me; I couldn't install it through the extension manager and there was not default application for .vsix. However, I needed to open it (right click > Open with...) with Microsoft Visual Studio Version Selector and it worked.

    But according to the pdf Microsoft HLS SDK Developer Guide v1.0


    2. Installing the SDK
    The SDK is delivered as an Extension SDK for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. To install it, run the Microsoft.HLSClient.Setup.vsix package from the command line.
    3. Referencing the SDK from your application
    Once you have installed the SDK, to refer to the SDK from your application, open the Add Reference dialog and select Windows Extensions. You should see Microsoft HLS Client SDK listed in newscrshot image

    Re: How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    Does such SDK really exist? I am rather tempted to remove this thread completely.
    If it exists, why it is not possible to find anything regarding it, except for your question everywhere?
    If it happens to be some closed, partner-only SDK, you are probably not supposed to talk about it on public sites.
    Even if it is a real Microsoft SDK, and we consider that Nokia is a Microsoft label now, this question is cross posted on MSDN, http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/For...oolsforwinapps, which is still "more Microsoft" than Nokia Developer. Also there the answer says generally you need VS 2010 or later for using VSIX extensions. VS 2012 should meet with that requirement. Poster also says there he has no idea what SDK you are talking about.
    If "Microsoft HLS SDK Developer Guide v1.0" exists, it probably tells the requirements for installing the SDK.

    can you please google for "Microsoft HLS SDK Developer Guide v1.0" for SDK installation details.


    only VS 2012 mentioned and not pro or express version mentioned

    The only HLS SDK I can find for WP8 is this: https://www.3ivx.com/technology/wind...streaming.html

    You can't install VSIX extensions in Express Versions of Visual Studio. If you have some installation guide it would be better to give us a link to where it can be found instead of having us look through the internet ourselves. The document you're mentioning is not being found by Google.

    Re: How to install external packages.vsix files on to microsoft visual studio 2012

    Yep, me too. The first 5-6 hits are replicates of this question.
    A link is provided by Lucian in #7. It says "Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012" to me, so that one is expected to support extensions. However it will likely ask for a license key.
