How to debug C# console app with VS Code on Windows 11 ARM64?



I’m running the insider preview version of Windows 11 for ARM64 and installed the Visual Studio Code ARM64 build.

Using dotnet new (SDK 6 is installed) I was able to create a simple console app. It runs successfully using dotnet run.

If, however, I try to debug the project from withing VS Code using ".NET Core Launch", I’m getting this error:

Error processing ‘configurationDone’ request. This version of the
Visual Studio Remote Debugger (MSVSMON.EXE) cannot be used to debug
ARM64 processes or dumps. Please use the ARM64 version instead.

What do I need to install/configure to make this work?


At the time of this writing, the answer is to use the latest insider version (1.63.0-insider) of Visual Studio Code.

This particularly interesting, as the Apple Silicon version, which is also ARM code, does not require the insider build.
