Some browsers rename the file extension on downloading the vsix file.

You need to rename the file after its downloaded to .vsix and then it'll run executing in Visual Studio.

Hi Jared, thanks for the quick response! Your tip is also provided in the tutorial, however it does not seem to work

So I have tried three new things:

- changing the name and file extention several times for .vsix to something else and than back to .vsix => error keep reoccuring

- use two other browsers to download the file, also with repeating the step above => no success

- copying hte json files in the package and calling them extension or package => no difference

My VS code is up to date I'm at 1.38, really not sure how to continue, nice platform only debugging in the browser IDE is not doable

Best,

Dirk

Apologies I misread the forum heading! It is a Visual Studio plugin, not VS-Code! We'd love your feedback on how to improve the debugging in the web IDE.
