There is a solution running in VS 2017 now and I need to upgrade it to support 2019 builds. I am following the link:
to work on this. I found the .vsixmanifest files but am unable to locate <prerequsites>, <InstallationTarget>,<Dependencies> to modify the supporting version numbers. Can anyone help me where to find it. It must be properties or configuration of the project.
As new to VS, I am unable to locate. I searched entire solution and it did not show any result. Can anyone please help me locate it. Below code is from my internet search.
<div class="crayon-line" id="crayon-5d5cd45f06069020021840-1"><Prerequisites>

</div> <div class="crayon-line" id="crayon-5d5cd45f06069020021840-3"></Prerequisites></div> <div class="crayon-line"></div>
<div class="crayon-line">and also I need Dependencies as well. I think these are from some config file or properties. Please correct me if I am wrong and point me in the right direction.</div> <div class="crayon-line"></div>

I found the .vsixmanifest files
Does this file you mentioned above mean the source.extension.vsixmanifest file?
We can consider it as default .config file for vs extension.
When we create a new vsix project, this file will be created by default.
And the InstallationTarget, prerequsites and Dependencies are part of nodes in this file.
We can double-click the file in VS to modify the parameter by VS UI:
Or we can open this file with notepad (Same way like the blog does):
Hope it helps. Feel free to let me know with more details if the issue persists.

Thanks Yang Shen,
Right now, I am building the solution with all the nuget packages updated to .NET framework 4.7.2 version thinking that this will build the solution. Please suggest me a solution with which I can migrate the solution to latest version i.e, 2017 to 2019.

As far as i know, migrate a project from VS2017 to VS2019 require no special oprations as long as your VS2019 has the right version of .net framework(like your .NET framework 4.7.2).
All you need to do is to open your project with VS2019.
