Installing Sitefinity Thunder into Visual Studio 2015

If you have tried to install Sitefinity Thunder (v 1.5.0.1) from the Nuget package manager inside of Visual Studio 2015, you might have gotten the error below that “the extension is not supported on the current product”.  I am running Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise and I got the error on multiple machines.

ThunderErrorVS15

Don’t panic!  Close down Visual Studio, head on over to Visual Studio Gallery and download the extension from there and install it. https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/381fde64-9898-4a5d-ae20-861e119bbf92

Everything will work just fine!

Cheers
