Why when i install monogame i can't install it in visual studio 2017?

I’m trying to install monogame but the install doesn’t show a check mark on visual studio 2017 templates)))

Although visual studio comunity 2017 I have installed and I have windows 10.

Have you restarted your computer since installing VS?

Usually you just need the VC# folder in the templates directory.


Also, Hi @Iskander_Koovyikin and Welcome to the Forums!

Happy Coding!

His installer he is showing shows version

The monogame download page only lists the 3.7. xxx installer as that’s for vs2017?
Were did you find that at ?

Last i heard you had to manually add in the templates for 2017 but i had thought that was in concert with using the nuget which targets core 3 and vs 2019 which can use it. I didn’t even know there was a installer for 3.8 ?
