Issue

 


Unable to uninstall an Add-In from the Menu option from the Visual Studio IDE


The Add-in does not even show in the Add-in Manager


 


Resolution


 


To resolved this issue you can try the following steps :


 


– Go to C:/Program Files folder and delete the folder with the name of Add-In


– We can try doing a reset settings from Tools/Import and Export Settings


– We can go to Tools/Environment / Add-in-Macros Security option and then uncheck Allow Add-in components to load


– We can also go to Tools/ Customize option and search for the name of that Add-In in the Toolbar list and if you find it there you can uncheck it


– Open a New project


– Right click on “Toolbox” button on the left side and clicked on “Choose Item”


– Search for Add-In name in the list


– If not found then do a RESET for Toolbox


– Then close Visual Studio IDE and reopened it and the toolbar should be gone


– If still facing issue you can try devenv /resetuserdata or devenv /resetsettings or devenv /setup
