    I installed Visual GDB on my Windows 10 Machine today.

    It appears to be installed ok into Visual Studio 2017.

    I then started following the tutorial for adding the GNU toolchain for ESP32.

    Downloaded and ran “esp32-gcc5.2.0-r9.exe” and it appeared to install ok.

    However, when I start a NEW project in Visual Studio I see options for Android Wizard, Custom project, Embedded Project Wizard etc but no “ESP IDF Project Wizard” option.

    Next I attempted to run the esp toolchain installer again but get message “Access is Denied”

    I was going to try uninstalling the toolchain and reinstall but cannot find the folder where it resides to delete it.

    Anyone know what is happening here and how I can get the ESP-IDF projects running?




    The new advanced ESP-IDF project subsystem was added to VisualGDB 5.4 Preview. Most likely you have installed v5.3 that doesn’t have this feature yet (and won’t install the latest toolchain). Please ensure you install the v5.4 preview version. Also if the old toolchain cannot be removed from VisualGDB, please try closing all Visual Studio instances and simply deleting the toolchain directory from Windows Explorer.
