Disable Visual Studio plugins

Post by creaseypaul » Mon 10 Oct 2011 16:39

Is it possible to disable the Entity developer/LinqConnect plugins without uninstalling them? They don't appear in the Add-in manager.

My visual studio is quite unstable enough as it is on my rubbish laptop so i'd like to be able to remove them when they aren't in use.

Sorry for that.

LinqConnect and Entity Developer are integrated into Visual Studio as packages, not as add-ins:

There is no standard manager for enabling/disabling Visual Studio packages.

As a workaround, you can reinstall LinqConnect without integrating it into Visual Studio, and work with the stand-alone version of Entity Developer.
