vsix file install on mac

Is it possible to install a vsix extension file for Visual Studio 2019 on a Mac.

On the mac it does not know the file extension , in Windows i can dubble click on it for install but not on a Mac.

Not possible on a Mac ?

    The vsix files from the marketplace are likely to be for VS on Windows , vs for mac does not support it .

    You can open Extension Manager to install extensions on mac.

    Thanks ColeX ,

    I can't find it with the Extension Manager because it is an vsix file .

    Is there a way to unzip or something like that .

    Is about ConfusereX , want to try it on a mac image.

    vsix can't be installed on mac , the file you installed on windows can't be used on mac.
