Attach to dotnet.exe extension for Visual Studio 2017 & 2019 now has a new version As the version number indicates, only a small thing has changed: The extension manifest had problems with its dependencies, causing issues when trying to install the extension to VS 2019 Preview.

The new version is now available for download from the project’s repository: https://github.com/mikoskinen/AttachToDotnet/tree/master/releases/

Unfortunately the extension is still not available through the Visual Studio’s extension marketplace, but I hope to have it there in the following week.


Just a quick recap and reasoning for the extension: There’s usually many dotnet.exe processes. Attaching Visual Studio’s debugger to the correct one can be hard. This extensions aims to solve the issue by displaying the actual .DLL of the dotnet.exe process.
