My Visual studio is the lastest version. I installed the Wix toolset Visual Studio 2022 Extension, but it didn't work, so I consider this extension broken. But I cannot uninstall it from visual studio, is there a way to delete it manually?

    Hi @燕鹏 李 ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Could you tell me how you uninstall the Wix toolset Visual Studio 2022 Extension? Please uninstall it under Extensions > Manage Extensions > Installed.

    About this extension, I found a similar issue: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/t/Installation-of-wixtoolset-extension-cor/10057006.
    It seems be a known issue. You can also vote it and add your comment there to track the process.

    Sincerely,
    Anna

    Per-user and administrative extensions
    Most extensions are per-user and are installed in the ** %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<Visual Studio version>\Extensions\ ** folder. A few extensions are administrative extensions and are installed in the ** <Visual Studio installation folder>\Common7\IDE\Extensions\ ** folder.
