Hi all,

I am trying to install visual D and using it in Visual Studio 2019. Unfortunately I am not able to select Visual Studio 2019 in the installation window (where you can choose the components)- it is greyed out. I can only select "Install in VS 2017 Build Tools"

Visual D 1.0.1
Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise 16.7.5

How is Visual D recognizing Visual Studio?
Is there any solution to this issue?

Yes, there is a solution (I had the same problem previously):

I tried to reproduce this with a fresh Windows image and Visual Studio 2019 16.7.5, both Community and Enterprise. No need for manual registry entries here.

Is it possible that you (and Imperatorn) are not using the standard VS installer, but some company distribution of Visual Studio that doesn't change the registry and maybe even not allow uninstall?

Hmm, maybe. I'll take a look later. But it's not super important since it seems few are having the issue and there are workarounds available. I'll check if there's anything special with our installation though.

Sorry for the late reply.

I don't know if it helps, but:
I have downloaded and installed VS Studio enterprise about a year ago. It was no company disitribution, I have installed it via the normal installer (but it's licensed via university). Since then I used the update functionality.

currently installed versions:
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro - 10.0.18363
Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 - Version 16.7.5
