The async package wizard thing crashes on my system with E_INVALIDARG
meanwhile, i could make a visual studio extension manually.
but microsoft does not document the VSIX packages very well.
That's neglect. They're violating their own guidelines by effectively making it so a wizard is the only way to do the thing.
This is shameful for such a major MS product. And this isn't a new thing. Documenting VS extensions has been a problem of theirs for as long as I can remember.
However, putting all the settings in a separate registry hive file, and forcing you to use VSIX while it's (somewhat) unstable and (largely) undocumented makes it far worse in recent versions of VS. This is a disservice to everyone who uses their product.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
Just proves that nobody likes to write documentation of any description. Even Microsoft.
Another example is creating project templates. Sure, they have a wizard, but that doesn't go nearly far enough.
