DateTime.Now = Cannot provide the value: host value not found

According to developer community site, solution is to add

Imports System.Diagnostics
<Assembly: DebuggerDisplay("{ToString}", Target:=GetType(Date))>

to your AssemblyInfo.vb (located in the MyProject folder of your Startup project)

Not the fix I wanted to see - but it works.

In the Immediate Window, display the value "toString"ed, i.e. ?variablename.ToString will display it correctly. This worked for me.
