    I’m testing VisualGDB on two PC (at work and at home). On my Home PC, I have a strange problem under Visual Studio 2019 (It works perefctly with VS2015). I have found someone who is experimenting absolutely same problem as me on StackOverflow (he describes the problem perfectly).

    Sorry, this is actually an issue caused by a recent change in the way Visual Studio reports its color settings to language services like the one used by VisualGDB.

    Please try the following build, it already contains a fix for it: VisualGDB-5.5.1.3311.msi

    Hello,

    I encountered the color problem too. After installing the fix above, the colors were corrected. However, I can’t build the project now, and I got following messages:

    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Sysprogs\VisualGDB\MSBuild\Targets\external.targets(6,3): error MSB4018: The “LaunchVisualGDB” task failed unexpectedly.
    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Sysprogs\VisualGDB\MSBuild\Targets\external.targets(6,3): error MSB4018: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type ‘VisualGDB.Builder.ISimpleFormattedBuildLogLineSink’ from assembly ‘VisualGDBCore, Version=5.5.1.1, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8f764369eb712693’.

    And following messages show up when I open the project:

    error : Designtime build failed for project ‘C:\Users\163wt\Desktop\EmbeddedProject1\EmbeddedProject1\EmbeddedProject1.vcxproj’ configuration ‘Debug|VisualGDB’. IntelliSense might be unavailable.
    Set environment variable TRACEDESIGNTIME = true and restart Visual Studio to investigate.

    Regards
