Visual Studio 2017 PowerShell Tools - PS debugger doesn't work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have loaded PowerShell Tools for Visual Studio 2017, on using Community version, and another one using Professional version.

    Community version debugger hitting breakpoints works correctly. Sometimes it fails, but most of the time it works.

    VS 2017 Professional level will hot stop on breakpoints, it just runs to the end of the script.

    Internet folks have different experiences, a couple have said that the PS debugger was setup for VS 2015, and not for VS 2017.

    The PS Extension says Visual Studio 2017, so I'm assuming it should work with VS 2017, but it doesn't.

    Any ideas on how to get it to work?

    Is there another PS extension out there that does work?

    Note: Category selection below does not have VS or PowerShell...I have no idea what category to select.

    I'll guess at Community Participation Center.

    Can someone forward or alert me how to get it to go to VS and or PS people?
