    • Have you installed using extension manager? Can you uninstall once and then download the extension directly from gallery and install. If still problem persits then please share more details like OS, VS Version.

  2. Same problem. E_INVALID_ARG. Windows 10, VS 2015 Community, ASP Net 5 project.

    Works on non-ASP Net 5 projects so this is probably the cause.

    .dll is not blocked. Uninstalled and reinstalled via VS (x2) and directly downloaded from Gallery (x1).

    Problem persists in the ASP Net 5 project.

    Uninstalled and used an alternative extension.

  4. I had to start VS 17 as ‘admin’, without that I kept getting this error. The “Temporary ASP.NET Files” folder didn’t exist on my system anywhere.

  5. I am getting an E_INVALID_ARG. Windows 10 error in Visual studio 2019

    I tried deleting the temp values, running in admin, and installing from gallery but still does not work.
