Cannot install VSIX with VS2015 #60
Manually launch the VSIXinstaller.exe from \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE - same issue unless I'm administrator and then it works. From the help menu that opens, we see that VSIX installer wants to create log files in %TEMP%.
Which is \Users\Stéphane... for me... Oh... now there's a \Users\St%C3%A9phane directory too, that was created when VS2015 was installed, and sure enough... the install logs are there. Give my user full permission on that directory...
... and now when I double-click the VSIX file, it works. So the issue is with VSIX installer that has an issue understanding the accent in my user directory. Damn damn damn.
