No Microsoft dbg option (VS2017)
Jan 27th, 2018 at 6:46pm
So I tried the atmel studio plugin without success ( http://www.visualmicro.com/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1515952156 ) now i'm trying Visual Studio before giving up on this extension.

So I installed (in this order) :
* The C++ Mobile Development
* The  Arduino IDE for Visual Studio plugin
* Arduino GDB for Visual Studio 2017

(tried to uninstall/reinstall as well, tried to reboot my computer as well).

I can't find the "vMicro/Debugger/Microsoft GDB Debugger" option...

I also looked at the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Visual Micro\Options\Debug General\MicroGdb Location register key. It does exist, but the file didn't exist. I extracted files from the vsix and put it the same folder as the register key.

Is there a verbos log for your extension? Does it support non english os? custom Visual Studio directory? Space/special character in path, ...? What exacly is needed in the C++ Mobile Development? (Settings I need to make sure I have installed)

Tried on the VS2017 Community edition

Also once the extension is installed is there a fake programmer added in the list like with the Atmel Studio? (It was simulator programmer or something like that).

I want to debug it without hardware first (to double check code seem ok) then maybe debugging with hardware.

Sorry I missed this post

To debug atmel hardware you should use atmel studio

When the "fake" "atmel studio" programmer is selected visual micro will allow standard atmel studio device programming to handle upload

When "vmicro>debugger>atmel studio" is selected visual micro will allow atmel studio to handle debug requests.

In both the latter two cases you are able to select simulator or a hardware programming device via project properties and as described in the atmel docs
