Visual Studio 2019 Toolbox not showing


I have installed Syncfusion v17 latest (Winforms) I have got visual studio 2019. But in my toolbox there is no syncfusion tools. I have run assembly manager re-install everything. Delete *.tbd files etc.. And re-run Toolbox Utility but its giving me "You must run Assembly Manager Utility before running Toolbox Utility". I have run assembly manager utility so many times.I have checked \Syncfusion installed Folder\Windows\\Utilities\ToolBoxInstallers but there is no Vs2019 toolbox extension. There is a file named SyncfusionToolboxInstaller_VS2017.vsix. Maybe i need vs2019 version. What i have to do ?

Please try the below steps to resolve the reported issue with the toolbox configuration.

     Syncfusion Toolbox VSIX Location: {Installed Drive}\{Program Files}\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\{PlatformName}\{Version}\Utilities\ToolBoxInstallers\SyncfusionToolboxInstaller_VS2017.vsix 
     Example : C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\Windows\\Utilities\ToolBoxInstallers\SyncfusionToolboxInstaller_VS2017.vsix  
 Admin Mode   
1. Open the command prompt window in admin mode.  
2. Navigate to Visual Studio 2019 IDE Location mentioned below.   
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Preview\Common7\IDE   
3. Run the VSIXInstaller.exe with the below commands.   
    VSIXInstaller.exe /a /q " {Syncfusion Toolbox VSIX Location} "   
     Example : VSIXInstaller.exe /a /q "C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\Windows\\Utilities\ToolBoxInstallers\SyncfusionToolboxInstaller_VS2017.vsix"
