VS2022 toolbars not configurable, project not loading
Jul 22nd, 2022 at 7:56pm
 
Using VS2022 Pro, still having VMicro on MS (AS7...) working beautifully. On VS22, the toolbars don't show up unless "manual all" is selected, and even then the options for a certain toolbar will not show up.

"Open an Arduino project" appears to do nothing, nothing shows up in Solution Explorer. The "action center" icon on bottom left shows "project loaded successfully", however nothing shows up.

I am confused, since everything worked seamlessly in AS7. Bugs? Not a stable release? Anyone else encountering issues?

The extension has been available in Visual Studio for a long time and is stable. I suggest we stick to this thread to understand what you have installed and what you are opening.

It's not clear if the extension is installed correctly. Please show the "Copy Info" in help about so that we can see what is installed.

"Tool bars manual" simply means you have manual control over the visibility of the entire tool bar.  Does not relate to indvidual items on tool bars. Project specific items do not appear if Visual Micro is either not configured/installed correctly or an Arduino project is not open.

I suggest we look first at what is installed.

About the toolbars: I understand the purpose of the "manual all" and "auto all".

I am definitely thinking something is not right, and I don't believe it's VMicro, as I have it installed and working in Microchip Studio, on the same PC. Here's the "copy info" content:

Can you see an Extensions> vMicro menu. If so please give screen shot.

Thanks

Thanks for the screenshot.

Can you also attach an image of the whole IDE with solution explorer open, and the project expanded?

Whole IDE below.

There's no VS project file, VMicro gives an error when "open a new Arduino project" (see second image).

Thanks for the images, it appears you are in Folder View from the Solution Explorer.

If you close the folder (File > Close Folder), then go to File > Open > Arduino Project, and locate your INO, does this then open the project correctly?

After loading the project I get a popup in the left bottom corner - see first image. The interface looks like in the second image after that.

Trying the suggestion found here:

https://www.visualmicro.com/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1467646643/1

I was counting on the fact that the C++ extension was automatically installed based on the thread below, however this is not the case. The C++ extension was not automatically installed.

https://www.visualmicro.com/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1615906409

I will post an update as soon as I can install the C++ extension and try again.

...getting somewhere. I was only able to partially install the C++ option, due to some firewall issues (will complete it tomorrow). So far, I am seeing some updates, opening a .ino project works, however the cpp files are not in the project explorer yet.

I will keep you posted tomorrow, after I fully install the C++ option.

Thank you for the support, this investigation and your guidance helped to bring this to successful resolution.

Here's what I had to do to solve this:

- installed the Desktop Development with C++ (it was not automatically installed when I installed VMicro)
- opened the .ino project file normally, with VMicro - this is the only way I could get the toolbars to show up and stay there, not disappear within 1 second
- added all the project files (.cpp) to the project, in the Solution Explorer (since the project was first time opened in VS, and there was no .sln file)

That's it, hopefully someone will find this helpful.
Thank you again for your help, Tim!

If you switch the "vMicro>Tool bar>Auto visibility" OFF then you have "normal" visual studio tool bar mode where you control visiblity by right clicking the tool strip area and hiding or showing bars. VS will remeber the selection.

You mentioned some firewall issues install the C++ for VS. It should auto install when you install the extension. VS should also recheck they are installed when you open/create a C++ or arduino project.  The installation is controlled by VS. We will retest thanks.

fyi: The docs are also here, first steps can be useful https://www.visualmicro.com/page/User-Guide.aspx?doc=index

Thanks for the update.

Thank you for the Auto visibility tip. Regarding the install, I am not sure why that (C++) didn't get triggered. I had firewall issues installing VS Pro, C++, VMicro... Anyways, the firewall issues were on my side.

Just so you can have a more complete picture, here's my initial setup: Microchip Studio (basically AS7) with VMicro installed and running.
On top of that I installed Team Explorer 2022, then VS Pro 2022, then the VMicro extension for VS Pro 2022.
