VSCode: Debug > Add Configuration, nothing happens

ctrl + shift + P then enter "reload window" works for me

Alright I think I have this working. Steps:

  • I deleted the launch.json added in my edit. (Effectively now no launch.json file again)
  • Navigate to Debug > Start Debugging
  • Ignore the error dialog that appears
  • VSCode will create a launch.json and display the debug menu

From here it looks like I'm back on track.

Check VS Code OUTPUT window. When VS Code is downloading some launcher packages like .NET Core Launch, Debugging process may be affected. After downloading packages are completed check it again.
