How to: Add a Dependency to a VSIX Package

You can set up a VSIX package deployment that installs any dependencies that are not already present on the target computer. To accomplish this, include the VSIX dependencies to the source.extension.vsixmanifest file.

To add a dependency

  1. Open the source.extension.vsixmanifest file in the Design view. Go to the Dependencies tab and click New.

  2. To add an installed extension: in the Add New Dependency dialog box, select Installed extension and then, for the Name, select an extension on the list.

  3. To add another VSIX that is not installed: : in the Add New Dependency dialog box, select File on file system and then use the Browse button to select the VSIX.
