You can update a Visual Studio extension on your system by using Extensions and Updates to install the updated version.
To help prevent conflicts during development, we recommend that you uninstall earlier versions of extensions in progress, and also uninstall or disable any other potentially conflicting extensions.
We’ve released an update to Visual Studio 2017 and you can download it and start using it today.
If you create an updated version of an extension, you can signify it as updated by incrementing the version number in the VSIX manifest.
