**For Visual Studio 2012, if installing with the .vsix file doesn’t work, use the Tools >> Extensions and Updates and search for the extension in the Online category and install.

    The fix mentioned in the solution is to download the SelectionHighlight.vsix file then.

    Change the Extension to .zip
    Open the zip file and edit the manifest file in a text editor.
    Change the Visual Studio Version attribute to 11.
    After saving the file back into the zip, change the extension back to .vsix

    Just move forward with installing the file and you are set.
