  • Hi friend,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Please check this: R Tools for Visual Studio and the R Tools is not available in VS 2019. Please see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/porting/port-migrate-upgrade-visual-studio-projects-2019?view=vs-2017.

    "R Tools for Visual Studio | R Tools for Visual Studio was removed from the Data Science Workload in Visual Studio 2019 Preview. You can continue using Visual Studio 2017 or alternatives like RStudio."

    Latest RTVS ships with Visual Studio 2017 as part of the Data Science workload. R Tools for Visual Studio (RTVS) isn't being carried forward to VS 2019. Microsoft's R efforts are being focused on Azure Notebooks instead (https://notebooks.azure.com).

    If you have additional feedback on the availability of RTVS, follow up on https://github.com/microsoft/rtvs/issues, which is monitored by the engineering team.

    Sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara

  • Thanks for the response Sara. Is there any official line regarding RTVS and Visual Studio 2019? Both are great products and as you know, a lot of data science professionals use both R and Python so having one excellent IDE to utilise both tools is a huge productivity boost.

  • Hi Sara: 

    Thanks for the replies, i guess this could be really bad experience for quite some users if VS decide not to carry RTVS forward. 

    This is such a great tool for people has VS background and we can do both Python and R in the same environment, hope some one could make a equivalent plugin on the VS market.
