Offline installation

Typically, offline installations start with a download of SonarLint from your IDE's Marketplace.

The Visual Studio Marketplace has unique pages for each version of Visual Studio: 2022 and 2019.7+. You can still find SonarLint for Visual Studio 2017 on the Marketplace, but it's no longer supported.

If you don't have access to your IDE's Marketplace, the SonarLint for Visual Studio VSIX release files are available here.


To install SonarLint offline, you must first download the SonarLint for Visual Studio executable file from the Visual Studio Marketplace. Administrators can download the plugin and distribute the installer internally if needed.

  1. Go to the Visual Studio marketplace and search for sonarlint
  2. Choose the SonarLint for Visual Studio version 2019, or 2022, that corresponds to your Visual Studio version.
  3. Click Download.
  4. Once the file is on your disk, double-click it to launch the installation.

The extension will be installed after all instances of Visual Studio have been closed.
