Is the Macro feature removed in Visual Studio 2022

Dear All,

Is the Macro feature in Visual Studio 2019 removed (i.e., doesn't exist) in Visual Studio 2022?

Hi @BenTam-3003 , what kind of Macro feature do you mean? Could you share some screenshots or could you describe this feature? I guess, you mean the feature that this extension(Macros for Visual Studio) provide? If yes, I’m afraid, currently there is no corresponding extension which adapts VS 2022.

It seems that VBA macros were removed in Visual Studio 2012 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Visual_Studio#2012) . You can write extensions and Add-ins in C#.

@Viorel-1

Thanks for your reply. The product I mentioned is 2022 rather than 2012.

It is not available in 2022 because it was removed in 2012.

Hi @Viorel-1

However, I still found this feature, i.e., macro, in version 2019.

As stated, the Macro features were removed back in 2012. There have been a variety of paid-for and free replacements (none as good as the original in my opinion). There is a Microsoft provided extension you can install up to 2019, but it doesn't work in 2022 (I just tried). I'm currently in process of finding an alternate.

I don't understand why Microsoft thinks this functionality isn't useful, or perhaps they just think third-party makes better options, but I was perfectly happy with the one they removed.
