IVsExtensionManager.FindMissingReferences Method

Checks whether all references of a given extension are installed. This method only checks for first-level dependencies and does not verify that references of references are installed.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.dll)

function FindMissingReferences(
    extension : IExtension
) : IEnumerable<IExtensionReference>


Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<IExtensionReference>
A collection of IExtensionReference objects. These represent a subset of the references of the extension, and these references correspond to extensions that Extension Manager was unable to locate.
