I just downloaded a VSIX file from the Visual Studio Gallery.

How do I install it in Visual Studio?

Best Answer

VSIX is a Visual Studio extension installer. You must have Visual Studio 2010 or newer in order to install them, but you should be able to install it by double-clicking the .vsix file. Alternatively you should be able to install it from within the VS Extension Manager (Tools->Extension Manger)
