Installing .vsix for all users

Nov 25, 2011 at 1:05 PM

Hi, installing the CKS .vsix seems to install it only for the installing user (the VS templates go to AppData folder of that user). We have developer images used by several developers and we would like to install the templates for all users. Any recommendations for doing this (should I copy files from the first user's AppData folder to the correct VS folders under C:\program files)? I understand there's also an AllUsers setting in the .vsix manifest that you could use, so .vsix could be unzipped, manifest editied, .vsix rezipped and then run. But any comments?

Cheers,

HH

I've copied this into the work items for implementation. I guess there has never been a real reason for making it user specific other than thats the default behaviour.
