    I am demoing Parallels looking to switch from VMware Fusion. One of the big things that sparked my interest was the visual studio plugin. When I follow instructions and double click on the VMDebugHelper.vsix it errors on install. I am using Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition. I am not sure if Visual Studio 2019 is not supported. If that is case when will support be established? I am attaching images and text of error.

    Well after looking at the vsix file by unzipping it and looking at the manifest file it does appear to only support up to version 2016. I tried manually editing the manifest file in the vsix to support 2019. It did let me install after I did that but warned it wasn't supported. After install it kept locking up visual studio so I had to uninstall. So definitely the issue is it doesn't support this version. So last question would be is there plans to support visual studio 2019? If so is there a timeline for that support if so? Thanks.

    Lol well I see how snappy Parallels support can be now lol. Think it'd be better to stick with VMware Fusion!!!
