Missing reference: Visual Studio MPF


The current version of this extension (6a3b10747343) cannot be installed in Visual Studio 2013 u4 because of a missing reference (says the installation log file): Visual Studio MPF

I couldn't find out what it is and how to resolve the issue. Until then it remains broken.

That was easy. The Reference element in the file source.extension.vsixmanifest must be removed completely. I don't know what it's good for, but it doesn't seem necessary and without it, everything works.

I've already had to remove it because it broke in the same way on VS 2015. Not sure why that hasn't been pushed yet...

Guess I'll need to go back and patch the current release on the VSG too. MPF basically always has to be installed, so there's no need to explicitly require it.
