    Hi.
    Upfront, I am using the (currently) newest Unity 2018.2.0f2 with Package Manager 1.9.11.
    I have created a local package inside the Packages Folder and referenced it in the manifest.json and everything works fine.
    But when I move the Package outside of the Project folder(and change the path in the manifest) something strange happens.
    Unity does recognize the package and the code compiles normally. But when I want to open the C# Project via the Assets menu, it gives me an error and does not open the Visual Studio:

    NotSupportedException: Visual Studio Tools: Project file has no matching compilation unit for <AssemblyName xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003">Packagename</AssemblyName>

    UnityEditor.SyncVS.SyncAndOpenSolution () (at C:/buildslave/unity/build/Editor/Mono/SyncProject.cs:181)​

    I had this working already in a previous Unity Version I think. I do not remember if it was 2018.1 or 2018.2.beta.

    Use the VS 2017 installer to update your VS installation to the latest version.

    Hi, I have the same problem on osx.

    VS for mac version: 7.5.4 (Build 3)
    vs4m tools for unity version: 1.5.0.1
    Unity 2018.2.0f2

    edit:
    solved by switching VS to the beta channel and updating to
    VS 7.6 Preview (7.6 build 2086)
    tools 1.6.0.2
