@qrtio thanks for this observation. It is very interesting. If we create a tool window with an empty window user control then all tool windows work well. We don't have to show the tool window just make sure it is created.

The platform explorer and serial monitor are not connected therefore I think that Microsoft have some sort of timeout issue when we attempt to load a tool window that contains many controls created in the visual studio designer. The serial window is such as window, whereas the platform explorer has zero "designed controls".  all platform explorer controls are created dynamically at run time.

We will create a hidden empty tool window which is little overhead and that fixes the issue until Microsoft find the problem.

Thanks again!

Visual Micro 1905.29 sp2 has been released with a workaround for vs2019 tool window issues. The issues relate to all previous versions of Visual Studio 2019 on the new windows 1903 build.

The latest release has been updated in the forum and will shortly be posted to the gallery.
https://www.visualmicro.com/forums/YaBB.pl?board=VS_ARDUINO_EXT_RELEASES


The workaround creates a hidden tool window with an empty windows user control called "Vs2019 has issues". You will not see the tool window, it does not affect performance and will not provide any indication that it has been created other than the Serial Monitor now works.


Thanks again for all the effort, this obvious issue is disappointing but vs 2019 is a good IDE so maybe we have to suffer a few hiccups  Sad

Sorry for the delay. The latest release 1907.6.7 resolves the issue if it continued for you. The issue was related to the recent conversion to asnyc packages for VS2019 (vs2017 uses same vm code so was also affected).
