Visual Studio Documentation - Help Viewer 2.3: cab was not signed by Microsoft

Hello,

I am using VS2019 (version 16.9.1), Help viewer 2.3. When attempting to download a help file (.Net API Reference), I get the error saying the cab file was not signed by Microsoft:

v2.Net API Referenca_C48DE2FA_en-us__3(332495cf-7837-eae3-003f-584257a98156).cab

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @BaspanovOleg-5798 ,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

In addition to .Net API Reference, have you installed other contents? Please check if the same error occurs when installing other contents.

I installed the .Net API Reference online on my side and couldn’t reproduce your error. You can try the following workaround: remove the installed content > uninstall the Help Viewer in Visual Studio Installer > repair your VS > add the contents again.

Sincerely,
Anna
