I started to use ADS a few days ago.

Here are the settings:

Version: 1.44.1 (system setup)

Commit: 8f53a316fa00a98264f1ab119641cd540b5af25c

Date: 2023-06-01T02:12:48.765Z

VS Code: 1.70.0

Electron: 19.1.8

Chromium: 102.0.5005.167

Node.js: 16.14.2


OS: Windows_NT x64 10.0.17763

Mostly I'm interested in writing queries in MS SQL.

Hence I wanted to install mssql extension.

I checked all available extensions on the server but 'mssql' is not listed

Maybe it goes now by another name?

I don't have Visual Studio on my server ... maybe that's the reason I don't see it?

My point: how could I get this extension

'mssql for Visual Studio Code'

Note: I don't have admin privileges on this server.
