I can't open any scripts from within the Unity Editor to launch VS2017 or VS Code.
Same here, its just frozen
What version of the individual packages are you using? There are new Visual Studio Editor, and Visual Studio Code Editor packages. The newest versions are 1.0.11, and 1.0.7 respectively.
Thanks for the solution @miniwolf_unity !!! i had same problem, only that i forgot to update the packages after upgrading my project to 2019.3.
Hey guys are you running windows?
I am running macOS Mojave Version 10.14.6 on a MacBook Pro and VS Code still doesn't work for me.
I do have the Visual Studio Code editor Package version 1.0.7 (It's a new project created with unity hub natively targeting the beta 2019.3.0b1) when i double click any c# file in the editor VS Code opens but on the welcome screen and neither the file is opened nor the project is properly opened in VS Code.
Opening VS Code doesn't work right. VS Code opens but doesn't get the project, nor does it open the file.
Windows, latest VS Code, latest VS Code Editor package (1.07) on 2019.3 Beta
I just started having this issue this morning. It was working perfectly fine yesterday and nothing has updated. Anyone have a solution? Other Unity project open just fine - but not the one I was working on. I even tried deleting all of the .csproj files and they just get re-created.
We have a number of issues with VSCode. You could try updating to the preview package 1.1.0. to see if that fixes the issue.
I haven't tried updating to the preview package yet, but it seems to be opening several copies of VS Code when double clicking from the editor. if you open task manager you can see they're all located under the Unity Editor Drop down. If you End those tasks and open VS Code separately it all works properly, not sure if this info helps or not!
Edit: Updated to 1.1.2 but still having the same issue . I can send more info if you need anything. Also not 100% sure but I THINK this might only be a project upgrade issue, I tried creating a new project and it seemed to work fine but i'd need to test a bit more to be sure
Hi, I was having a similar issue. In addition to what others stated, when I selected "External Script Editor" as Visual studio code, under the preferences-> external tools. Unity would try to open every asset in VSCode. This included trying to switch between scenes. I set the External script editor to 'Open by file extension' this solved the assets, but removed the functionality of the code editor. Reading the comments on this post, I went to package management and updated the VSCode package to 1.1.2, I was then able to go back and set the external script editor back to VSCode, and everything works properly now. Hope others have the same luck.
If it's still happening then yes please, submit a bug report along with the project files. Once submitted let me know the bug ID and i can take a look.
Having the same issue here. Double-click on a script, or click 'Open C# Project', and nothing opens. All it does is launch a bunch of Visual Studio Code processes in Windows 10 task manager. It's happening in 2019.2, too, even when using the latest Visual Studio Code Editor package. What's weird about it is, if I create a new Unity project it works fine, but once I restart the computer it stops working for the new project too. I've had to downgrade to Unity 2019.1 where everything continues to work fine (probably because that version doesn't depend on the Visual Studio Code Editor package).
having this issue for the last week or so. click a script, never opens. open task manager, says code editor is open under unity, but it never actually opens. reinstalled package manager vscode file, updated vscode, nothing.
if i copy the project and delete my old one, sometimes it'll work right until i have to close the project. anyone figure this out?
Yup having the exact same issue. Can't work with VS Code much at all.
it sucks because vs community is bloated and slow. i hope they prioritize this.
Broken for me too on 2019.2.5f1 using package 1.1.2
Same thing happened to me. Tried to reinstall Unity and VSCode still not helping. Help!
You can use .cmd instead of the .exe as a workaround to open / edit script file via VSCode. See here for the logged defect and workaround:
how are you setting vscode to use the .cmd file?
The cmd workaround was exactly what I needed, thanks!
Try going to preferences in Unity, and select the External Tools tab. In the External Script Editor drop-down menu select Browse, and in the open dialog set the file type to All Files. Go to the directory where Visual Studio Code is installed on your computer ("C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code" for me), and there should be a folder called bin. Open it, and then select code.cmd. Unity should automatically set everything up, and VSCode should now work again.
This is on Windows, I'm not sure how different it would be on Mac or Linux.
