Unable to Install the Visual Studio* 2019 add-in from the Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows*


Intel SGX SDK for Windows version 2.12


Quick steps to install the Visual Studio* add-ins in Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) SDK for Windows* package

  • Installed the Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) SDK for Windows*
  • Visual Studio* integration failed
  • Cannot find the SGX Debugger in Visual Studio

The Intel SGX Installation Guide for Windows OS states:

The add-in and wizard for Microsoft Visual Studio* 2017 IDE or Microsoft Visual Studio* 2019 IDE are also provided separately with vsix as extension name. If it unfortunately fails to install the add-in or wizard, double-click the corresponding vsix files to install them manually.

Follow these steps to find and install the .vsix files for the add-ins:

  1. Rename Intel(R)_SGX_Windows_SDK_2.12.100.4.exe to Intel(R)
  2. Double-click the .zip file and navigate to the installs subdirectory where you will find the .vsix files.
  3. Extract the .vsix files.
  4. Double-click SEWizardVS2019.vsix. Click Next if necessary.
  5. Double-click SEConfigureVS2019.vsix. Click Next if necessary.
  6. Change the extension of the .zip file back to .exe and install the SDK as usual.
