  • Hi Nehal Shah,

    Could you please provide some detailed steps to help us reproduce your problem in our side?

    I create a default USB application and the launch SDV from Driver menu in Visual Studio. It will promote some messages, which seems it works. If different with yours, please feel free to let me know.

    Please make sure your Visual Studio run as administrator to allow your Visual Studio has enough permission do any operations.

    Then please try run your Visual Studio in safe mode to prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution. And please make sure you have closed all third part software when running Visual Studio, such as antivirus.

    In addition, please check the ActiveLog.xml under the path of %AppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0. This file will log all operations when you operate Visual Studio. Whether there has any error messages.

    Best Regards,
