    @jbevain @sailro The "Unity Project Explorer" window is empty with Unity 2020.1.0b10 for me. I've already deleted all .csproj and .sln files and let Unity regenerate them to no success.

    Is this a known issue?

    EDIT: Doesn't work with Unity 2019.3.14f1 neither, so it's not a 2020.1 beta issue.

    It is working for both 2019.14f1 and 2020.x on my side. Perhaps it's something specific to your project ?

    Ah something is weird, you have VSTU 4.3.3 with VS 16.6. This is probably an old VSTU preview version we gave you. You should try to uninstall it in Extensions/Manage extensions.

    The expected VSTU version for VS 16.6 is 4.6.1.0

    That was spot on, it was indeed a preview version installed. I uninstalled it as you suggested, but "Unity Project Explorer" is still empty.

    I also uninstalled/reinstalled VSTU from the "Visual Studio Installer > Individual components" window, but it's still not working.

    Any more idea what I could try?

    Perhaps your project is triggering a specific issue? Any chance you could share it with us?

    Thanks for your reply.

    It's not project bound. I can reproduce it with a new project where I add a .vs file and it doesn't appear in the project explorer.

    Okay then in VS, click on Help/Send Feedback/Report a problem an file an issue please.

    This will give us useful telemetry info and log files. Perhaps something interesting to find, to better understand your issue.

    It works now, I'm not sure why though. Perhaps restarting the PC was the missing piece in the puzzle after reinstalling VSTU.

    Thank you for the help!
