    @ryzngard hmmm, i don't know if that'd be appropriate for most VS extensions, although maybe for some paid extensions i suppose it could be. certainly overkill for my little start page replacement extension though :-) i just wanted to add a little personal touch by greeting the user by their first name

    @aaabbbcccddd00001111 Why?

    @jnm2 i was wondering what that was about as well

    Hide this room.url (https://files.gitter.im/Microsoft/VisualStudio/BbIl/Hide-this-room.url)

    I haven't been game to click on it because i have no idea what it would actually do lol

    @jnm2

    It downloads a file named Hide-this-room.url.txt:

    [InternetShortcut]
    URL=https://gitter.im/Microsoft/VisualStudio#hide

    This kind of file could be created by dragging and dropping a URL onto the desktop.

    And then, I guess, it was dragged and dropped from the desktop into this text box.
    Seems like a failed prank attempt, too unlikely to be an accident.

    @yannduran
    @jnm2 weird...
    maybe they just wanted to remove the room from their list, and googled something like "remove room from gitter", and when they followed some instructions that was the result. who knows. looks like a throwaway github account, so you might be right about a prank attempt

    hi guys, I have a large app that when I debug using VS 2019 it keeps hangs on memory allocation functions. Last time was when calling _malloc_dbg(1605673, 1, fileName, lineNumber). Anyone knows how can I check why those functions are hangings?

    What is the smallest component I can add in Visual Studio 2019 to get rc.exe installed?

    Hi, guys I have faced with issue Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
    Error NETSDK1045 The current .NET SDK does not support targeting .NET Core 3.0. Either target .NET Core 2.1 or lower, or use a version of the .NET SDK that supports .NET Core 3.0.
    It happens after updated to new Visual Studio 16.2.0

    Hey all - what components do I need to include when installing vs_buildtools.exe to get cl.exe and vsvarsall? Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.VCTools doesn't seem to be enough

    Hi, I'm trying to set up a build environment by following the instructions on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/build-tools-container?view=vs-2019
    but it's not working. I copied the dockerfile used there but and when I run docker build -t buildtools2019:latest -m 2GB ., I get
    the results here

    But then I run,

    PS C:\Users\circleci\project\windows-ci> docker run --entrypoint "powershell.exe" buildtools2019 ls C:\
    docker run --entrypoint "powershell.exe" buildtools2019 ls C:\
    
    
        Directory: C:\

    where shows that no C:\BuildTools directory was created

    vs_buildtools.exe has a really nasty habit of silently failing. You can use the collect.exe program (e.g., in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/advanced-build-tools-container?view=vs-2019) to collect logs and copy them out of the container for helping to debug

    @ledettwy hey, i was working with ryan on this and reproduced it locally, got the following error out of build tools: PS C:\Users\ContainerAdministrator\AppData\Local\Temp> cat .\dd_setup_20190806200604_errors.log [09c0:000a][2019-08-06T20:06:15] Pre-check verification: Visual Studio needs at least 71.6 GB of disk space. Try to free up space on C:\ or change your target drive. [09c0:000a][2019-08-06T20:06:23] Pre-check verification failed with error(s) : SizePreCheckEvaluator.
    i'm gonna retry with the different base image you linked

    @JohanLarsson
    on what repo should I create issues about the vs test runner?
    Johan Larsson
    @JohanLarsson
    not sure test runner is the correct name
    Andrew Hall
    @ryzngard
    @JohanLarsson which issue? My guess is developer community feedback using VS built in feedback system, but I didn't immediately see the context from scrolling up.
    Johan Larsson
    @JohanLarsson
    ok, thanks
    the issue is that the runner is not running any test, not sure if this is worse now with the new runner
    but I'm not stuck, the r# runner runs them fine

    Anyone running into an issue with 16.2.1 not installing in an offline scenario? My install command is vs_community.exe --quiet --nocache --noWeb --wait --in <path to custom json file>. The custom .json contains the same workloads as in my download command and I've been using it for all versions of 2019 so far. Even if I just try to launch vs_community.exe it tries to run and then just closes. In my logs I get a 5003 error.

    Hi also cannt install vs offline,
    steps to reproduce

    Steps

    How can i perform offline offline installation of vs 2019?

    Basically 16.2.x is broken for offline install until they fix the cert it's trying to reference.

    @EwaldStricker
    Hi mikeh36 thanks for your hint. I tried the workarround regarding to your link but didn't solves the issue. Kr Ewald

    @artl93
    Hi, folks, sorry for the slow response. Yes, we're aware of the issue with the offline install and are working on getting a fix out quickly (read: days, not weeks). @EwaldStricker - since the workaround didn't work for you, please open a new issue from the installer (connected to the internet) and / or contact our chat support. By logging an issue, we can get logs from you and continue the conversation to make sure you get unblocked. Additionally, chat support is free for installation issues, and they are quite familiar with diagnosing offline install failures.

    Using the Solution Configuration Manager I can disable building a certain project when the solution is built by unticking the Build column for that project. Is there a way to do the same for tests, so a certain test project is not run unless done explicitly? Disabling Build still includes it when doing "Run All Tests" even though it's not built.

    Is it possible to install side-by-side two versions of Visual Studio (e.g. two Professional editions of VS2019), one of which is on the service baseline, while the other isn't? Possibly using two different accounts? And if it isn't, is it possible to get off the service baseline without reinstalling VS?
    Andrew Hall
    @ryzngard
    @fsnick does unloading the test project work?
    @zomgrolf should be possible as long as the install paths are different
    fsnick
    @fsnick
    @ryzngard is probably does, but wanted to have the project available in the solution for explicit testing
    But as it seems to be not possible I'll probably do some conditional skips based on env variables
    Andrew Hall
    @ryzngard
    @fsnick you should probablystill file a bug, I was just suggesting a potential workaround
    fsnick
    @fsnick
    Yep, thanks. Don't think it's a bug though, probably just not supported
    I found a workaround that just skips tests when some env vars aren't available. Seems to work
