How to integrate GitLab with Visual Studio IDE?

I am using Visual Studio 2015 Professional, I added the GitLab Extension for Visual Studio MysticBoy. Now when I launch VS 2015 I receive an error loading the extension.

Microsoft.VisualStudio.Composition.CompositionFailedException: Import “GitLab.TeamFoundation.TeamExplorerServices._storage” could not be satisfied. —> Microsoft.VisualStudio.Composition.CompositionFailedException: An exception was thrown while initializing part “GitLab.VisualStudio.Services.Storage”. —> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘Newtonsoft.Json, Version=9.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
at GitLab.VisualStudio.Services.Storage.LoadConfig()
at GitLab.VisualStudio.Services.Storage…ctor()
— End of inner exception stack trace —

Does anyone know how to correct this error?

I guess you should contact the person who wrote the extension as it is the extension that is the problem. Gitlab aren’t responsible for that.

Maybe these google searches will help: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘Newtonsoft.Json - Google Search

Or perhaps use a newer version of Visual Studio: Visual Studio Older Downloads - 2019, 2017, 2015 & Previous Versions
