    Hello,

    During the week, ​we updated our systems to Windows 10 Enterprise and Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise. After, we downloaded the Visual Studio Extension (http://cdn.icenium.com/live/vs/AppBuilder.vsix) and we try to install it. After double click the installer on the File Explorer, it just show briefly the hourglass pointer. No window, dialog, error or action on the Visual Studio. 

    Please indicate how to proceed with the installation. We need to publish some apps updates ASAP.

    Attached the screenshots of the VS and Windows about windows.

    Thank you

    JC

    After several hours of testing, I was able to install the extension... It seems to be a problem with the UAC in Windows 10 and the VSIXInstaller executable (VSIXInstaller.exe).  

    The standard double click operation over a VSIX file in the File Explorer is not installing ANY Visual Studio 2015 extension. Apparently is requires administrative permissions. However, it is not possible to indicate to "install as administrator".

    The only way to install the extension was executing the VSIXInstaller.exe as administrator and passing the VSIX file as parameters. To do that, follow this procedure:

    1. Open a CMD window as Administrator

    2. Go to Common, IDE folder of the VS 2015 installation. In my case:

    CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE

    3. Execute the installer passing the VSIX file as parameter. In my case:

    VSIXInstaller.exe c:\AppBuilder.vsix

    Finally, the installer will start the installation!

    I hope it helps you

    JC

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.

    Thank you for this solution. This was very helpful for getting an update for Testing Framework to install to VS2015.
