    Thank you! Finding this just made my day! Just installed Visual Studio 2013 Pro and was having issues installing packages through TOOLS-> Extensions and Updates. The error message I was receiving was “Input string was not in a correct format” with a near identical VSIXInstaller log as above. Uninstalling RSLogix Studio 5000 fixed it. Rockwell strikes again!!

    Thanks!
    Removing just the Rockwell component “Studio 5000 View Designer” finally worked for me. I didn’t have to uninstall the rest of the Studio 5000 package, just the View Designer package. Apparently this became an included package with Studio 5000 starting somewhere around Version 27.
