Hello Ranjith,

When you say "I tried with mysql-for-visualstudio-1.2.3.msi" did you actually mean "mysql-for-visualstudio-1.2.7.msi"?

If so, there is a known issue where the execution of the "devenv /updateconfiguration /log" command fails on some environments causing the installation/uninstallation to rollback. To workaround this you can follow below steps:

1. If you have any custom settings in the Visual Studio environment export them via the Tools->Import and Export Settings option.
2. Go to C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_<instance_id> and delete the "privateregistry.bin" file.
3. Attempt the installation/uninstallation again, it should succeed.
4. Open Visual Studio.
5. If for any reason VS fails to start, again delete the "privateregistry.bin" file.
6. Open Visual Studio and import your settings if applicable.

If not, are you able to provide the msi log, preferably the part where the error causing the rollback occurs?
