Dynamics CRM 365 Solution Template for Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition



You have recently downloaded new version of Visual Studio namely 2019 and want to develop PlugIns or maybe Custom Workflow with the power of Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition .

Here is good Visual Studio Project Template :

when you download it, you will get Microsoft.CrmDeveloperTools.vsix but it will not be installed to your version of  Visual Studio since it is complied with Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015

for such situation,
1- open Microsoft.CrmDeveloperTools.vsix with WinZip and find extension.vsixmanifest file.
2- edit extension.vsixmanifest with notepad or notepad++
3- find <Installation> tag
add following
    <InstallationTarget Version="[11.0,17.0]" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Community" />

but change below
    <InstallationTarget Version="[11.0,17.0]" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Premium" />
    <InstallationTarget Version="[11.0,17.0]" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro" />
    <InstallationTarget Version="[11.0,17.0]" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Ultimate" />
5- Archive again and build Microsoft.CrmDeveloperTools.vsix again.

Here is my updated copy, just download it then install, no need to do any changes:


Enjoy !
