Unable to instal VS2008

May 7, 2009 at 7:23 AM


Used to have 2.6.1 installed tried to upgrade to 2.8.1 but the icon (addin) does not show up. I have checked the previous post about customizing the menu but there is no icon available under addins ... any ideas ?

I Really like the tool so any help restoring it again would be appreciated.

I had the same problem but it solved when I closed VS 2008. Uninstalled xsd2Code and then installed it again.

But the plugin identifies itself as version 2.6 in the plugin manager.

btw. I have not had any earlier versions of xsd2Code installed.

Could you provide us with more details, e.g. OS Version, which version was previously installed, etc... Did you install Xsd2Code using a different user account?


  • Uninstall previous version of Xsd2Code
  • Restart your computer
  • Install latest version of Xsd2Code (current version is 2.8.4)
  • Open Visual Studio and check if Xsd2Code add-in is registered
  • If not, close Visual Studio, copy "c:\Program Files\Xsd2Code\Xsd2Code.AddIn.AddIn" file to your "%MyDocuments%\Visual Studio 2008\Addins\" folder and open Visual Studio

Let us know if that didn't work and is there is a problem with the installer
