Visual Studio 17.10 no longer shows Publish command

Steve Nicholson 20 Reputation points

I updated to VS 17.10 on my desktop computer. It no longer shows the publish command for my project. My laptop is still running VS 17.9 and does show the publish command.





I looked under Individual components in the Visual Studio installer and all of the components related to publishing are installed on both. Did the Publish command get moved in 17.10?

    Hi @Steve Nicholson

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    It is noted that not all project types support publishing. You can create a new project and check that the Publish command displays properly. 

    If the project on the desktop is the same type as the project on the laptop, please close all running VS instances and open the Visual Studio Installer > More > Repair your VS2022. Then, re-launch your VS and check it again. 

    If the project was copied from laptop to desktop device, please check if the project files are different. 

    If you have any third-party extensions installed, please temporarily disable them.

    Using Visual Studio Installer > More > Repair your VS2022 brought back the Publish command. Thanks.
