Updating Visual Studio Extensions

Today I wanted to do some overdue updating of Visual Studio extensions. Among others there where an update of NuGet from version 1.6 to 1.7 and for the Visual Studio Achievements from Version 1.6 to 2.0.

But unfortunatly the updated didn’t work as expected. For the Visual Studio Achievements I got an error, that the digital signature did not match and therefore the update could not be installed. For NuGet the message was different, but with the same result. I just got a message, that the update could not be installed.

Doing some quick google research revealt for NuGet, that problemes during updates are somewhat expected. The recommended solution is to uninstall NuGet and to reinstall the new version of NuGet.

I found however a hotfix for Visual Studio, which is supposed to resolve the update problem with the not matching signatures I encountered with the Visual Studio Achievements. This hotfix actually did resolve the problem for the NuGet update as well 🙂
