Installed but cannot find
Aug 23rd, 2020 at 11:32pm
 
I have concluded that the Arduino Genuio is not a very good development environment.  So lets try this.
Visual Studio 2017 is installed.  I installed Visual Micro, looked at the install file, says its there, but cannot find any hint of it within visual Studio 2017.  The log file contains:
Quote:
8/16/2020 5:12:55 PM - vsixinstaller.exe version:
8/16/2020 5:12:55 PM - 15.9.3041

And this is a bit further down
Quote:
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -            Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -                  Version : [15.0.27220,16.99)
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -            Microsoft.VisualStudio.Community
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -                  Version : [15.0.27220,16.99)
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -            Microsoft.VisualStudio.Enterprise
8/16/2020 5:12:56 PM -                  Version : [15.0.27220,16.99)

But I cannot find it.  I “think” I went through the right motions.  Please tell me what to look for.

Hi

It isn't clear what or how you have installed.

Here is a video of how to install. I recommend the installation from the IDE extension manager as shown in the video.

I am attaching the entire log.  Does that help?
I dislike videos, but I will go there and see what it has.

The log says it is installed okay. Do you have a vMicro menu item at the top of the screen? Please show screen shot of IDE.

I am unsure as to which part of the IDE you want to see.  Here are two screen captures that show all the project types.  One from the top section and the second with the list scrolled to the end.

Oops, don't know if I did something wrong, but it seems that the second attachment overwrote the first.  Posting the first one here.

I started that video and it appears to begin by downloading and installing the Arduino Genuino.  I already have that, version 1.8.10.  Not fond of it.  Then the video switches to something else and I have yet to figure out what he is trying to install.

Ooh, ooh, after a few reboots for other reasons, noticed a new tool bar item, vMicro.  I think all the fields are correct.  Then what?  I don't see a project type to start.  When I select Open and navigate to where a dot INO resides, there is no option for that type of file.
Still looking.
Edit.  Followed up on some things and it wants to download what looks like exactly the same Ardiuno IDE already installed.   The one I don't like.  Will it behave differently from within Visual Studio?

Open existing .ino: On the image you have posted there is a menu item called Open Arduino Project. There is also a menu item called "File>Open>Arduino Project". Both of those options allow you to select an existing .ino.

The documentation is here which explains how to open existing arduino code or create a new project.https://www.visualmicro.com/page/User-Guide.aspx?doc=index. I think you will benefit from reading the first part of the documentation (FirstSteps and Create/Open Project). You should see that all of your questions so far are clearly documented.

Create new Arduino sketch/project: Arduino code is C++ not C#. Your previous image of the Visual Studio New Project Wizard shows you are looking in the C# area. For newbies there is also the "File>New>Arduino project" that avoids the more complex "New Project Wizard" that you are struggling with.
