In VS 2015  v14.0.25425 update 3

I open Tools->Extenstion and Updates.
Under Installed->Tools I see
P4VS - Helix Plugin for Visual studio version 2017.1.152.674
is installed

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.

I am facing the same problem.

The installer does offer 2015 as the only option.

However, I do not see Perforce as an option in "Current source control plug in".

Please help.

I confirm this for Visual Studio 2012 too.

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...]\*

I'm having the same problem. I installed VS in a non-standard location (D: drive) and cannot find any P4 related files under "Microsoft Visual Studio XX\Common7\IDE\Extensions\..". I wonder if my problem is that I installed VS in a non-standard location - anyone else do this?

I assume you are using


Try to completely uninstall Perforce P4VS and reinstall P4VS using the executable above.
