Github Extension for Visual Studio Suddenly Disabled on VS v16.5.5


Today, Github Extension for VS disabled suddenly without any user interaction on it. VS Extension page says that “You should restart VS as administrator and enable this plugin.” I did it for a 10-15 times. Nevertheless, the extension stays “Disabled” in every try. I cannot see GitHub flow on VS. I think that is causes from a bug inside of plugin :frowning: I’m using the latest version of the plugin. How can I fix it ? Thanks.

Hi @berkbb,

I’m sorry you were having trouble with this. Did you manage to get it working again?

If not, could you try opening the Visual Studio command prompt and uninstalling the extension like this:

vsixinstaller /uninstall:c3d3dc68-c977-411f-b3e8-03b0dccf7dfc

Then try installing the extension from the releases page:

Please let me know how you get on!
