Vault Extension Error Message

Post by dsalter » Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:02 pm

We are using Vault standard version 10.0.1 (793) and one of the users is getting an error.

In VS SSDT 2017 when he tried to open from Vault he gets:

Could not obtain vault connection service. Reinstall Vault Standard client.

He reinstalled the client and tries to reinstall the Visual Studio extension and gets an error when trying to reinstall:

The extension is already installed to all applicable products.

Only using Vault Standard client in SSDT 2017 works now, not the extension. Any idea how to actually remove the extension?

Thanks.

I'm surprised the Visual Studio installer allows the extension for SSDT. Do you know if it is based on one of the Microsoft Community, Pro or Enterprise shells?

The list of supported products registered with the Vault extension are :

Microsoft.VisualStudio.Community 2017/2019
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro 2017/2019
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Enterprise 2017/2019


Within the Visual Studio 2017 installation directory, there is a VSIXInstaller.exe program which can install/uninstall the extension. I've mentioned this in another post here - viewtopic.php?p=79878#p79878

You could try the VSIXInstaller with the "/uninstall:vsixID" flag using the two VSIX identities for Vault Standard :
- VaultSccVsip.1EA47954-8515-402D-82D9-B5C332120A8D
- VaultCxnSvcVsip.62D7AF8C-D6FB-4a5f-84AC-5B397D72C1C3 (sub item which may be removed along with VaultSccVsip)

Hi,

No, it is just MS SQL Server Data Tools for Visual Studio 2017. We have 4 others who run the same without an issue. I run a full suite of MS development tools, so do not have any issues.

Surprisingly, it does work, except for this one fellow who cannot seem to remove it.

See if the VSIXInstaller will remove it. I successfully removed it on my VS 2017 Pro install using an administrative command line with VSIXInstaller /uninstall:..., so hopefully it does the same on your end.
