Can not see Perforce "Current source control plug-in"installer
Posted 20 June 2017 - 06:49 PM
I open Tools->Extenstion and Updates.
Under Installed->Tools I see
P4VS - Helix Plugin for Visual studio version 2017.1.152.674
Then I open Tools-Options...
I navigate to Source Control->Plug-in Selection
When I click the drop down "Current source control plug-in"
It does not show Perforce in the drop down.
When I open a solution I get a dialog
"The source control provider associated with the solution could not be found"
I downloaded the latest p4v installer from the web site.
When I double click the .vsix file it only offer to install into 2012 and 2013. The version I use 2015 is not offered.

The installer does offer 2015 as the only option.
However, I do not see Perforce as an option in "Current source control plug in".

My current workaround is to install an older version that works, then just unzip the .vsix and replace all files in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio XX\Common7\IDE\Extensions\[you'll find the right one...]\*

First uninstall all extensions from Tools, Extensions and Updates
Then install the version linked above.
Make sure it's enabled in Tools, Options, Source Control
After this you can upgrade to the very latest extension from here:
This problem only happens on a fresh install of Visual Studio 2015 where the P4VS extension has never been installed before. Please bear in mind that these are my personal findings, link to the older version provided by the fantastic folks in Perforce support.

All our dev tools are automatically deployed to dev workstations, so it's just a matter of unzipping the visix and doing a xcopy to the destination.
You do have to name your plugin folder to keep if from getting a random name when installed normally, and you should do a touch on "extensions.configurationchanged" to force VS to update extension info.
The problem happens here even on a non clean install of VS. Reproduction: uninstall old extension, restart, install new extension, restart. Now no entry in source control - plugin selection
