How do I get the Visual Studio Extension
If you would like to install the extension, you can visit the Visual Studio Marketplace here, or search for ‘Spira’ or ‘Inflectra’ in the extensions panel within Visual Studio:
You may see multiple versions of the extension. Due to the way Visual Studio works, we have a couple of different versions:
