When compiling VSPackage, an error occurred:

   Extension ‘ef9502be-dbc2...’ could not be found,Please make sure XIDLBuilder the extension has been installed.

the 'XIDLBuilder ' is project name.

I see this user id is another one of those created for just this question. I will assume you have been told before that you need to provide more information. Is "ef9502be-dbc2" the entire code? It might be a portion of a GUID and if it is then you need to provide all of it. The phrase ",Please make sure XIDLBuilder the extension" is not the exact message; it would help to provide the complete and exact message.

I changed the guid in Package and *.vsct files to '6ced3125-e1ab', but the problem still happened.

Hi Integrating a compiler in VS,

Try to delete the cache of visual studio, the path as below. And the older will be recreated with default settings, then build the project again


Best regards,
