Support dependencies for VSIX extensions #15477
Problem: specifying “extensionDependencies” in the extension manifest does not work as intended.
Steps to Reproduce:
In my case, I had this code:
Expected: VSCode extension dependencies are installed
Furthermore, if i uninstall my extension, VSCode asks if it should uninstall dependencies as well and if answered yes, extension dependencies are properly removed. This tells me I got the extension name
How are the extension dependencies being removed if they were not installed with the extension which has dependency on it? Was the dependency already installed?
I also looked at https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode-extension-samples/tree/master/extension-deps-sample and tried the examples suggested there and it didn't help. I still observe the same behavior.
