Description Mark Probst 2013-03-28 13:58:53 UTC
Xamarin Studio should have .mpack as a supported file type and offer to install it when such a files is opened.
Comment 1 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-03-28 14:05:16 UTC
In general, addins should be provided via repositories, users should never have to see mpack files.

This is support specifically telling people to install .mpack files by hand:

Will take a look at it.
Comment 4 Jason Imison 2016-10-19 15:09:40 UTC
'Install via file' from the Addin manager works fine.
