Visual Studio 2019 Community

John E. Steigerwalt 1 Reputation point

Visual Studio 2019 Community is installed with ".NET desktop development" selected for download; I am working with Visual Basic.
I want to add a new project "Setup Wizard" to an existing project but there is no selection entry for "Setup Wizard" in the "Create a new project" options.
Question: what other downloads must be made to be able to add "Setup Wizard"?
Thanks much...

    Hi @John E. Steigerwalt ,

    Thank you for taking time to post this issue in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    The Setup Wizard or Visual Studio Installer Projects project template is provided by this Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects extension.

    You need to download and install Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects extension, from Visual Studio > Extensions > Manage Extensions > Online > search and find Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects > Download. After finishing downloading, please close Visual Studio and start installing this extension.


    Of course, you can also download this extension directly from Microsoft Visual Studio Marketplace, which David and RLWA32 had mentioned above. And then install it manually by double click the downloaded .vsix file(remember to close every instances of Visual Studio before installing).


    Best Regards,
