Problems with installation

Postby computermaus » May 11th, 2018, 4:13 pm


I used php tools for a long time. Then I had problems with the installation of an update. I always got an error message that some catalog names not found. I tried to remove the old version manuall. It seemed to work because I didn't see it anymore in the extention list. Now I tried to install the new version. It seems to be fine but when I start VS2017 then I can't find the php tools :-(

Thanks for the post. I've checked the log and it actually seems that everything was installed properly. I would try to reinstall again.

The original issue with catalog names is usual problem in Visual Studio MEF Cache, just delete this folder and restart VS.
Code: Select all

The part of path with 15.0 might actually be 15.0_somehash
