Hi,

This workaround fixes support cBot projects in new Visual Studio. But it doesn't fix the problem with opening cBot in Visual Studio using context menu item 'Edit in Visual Studio'.
You need to open cBot solution file manualy:

  1. In cBot context menu select 'Show in Folder'
  2. Find folder with the name of cBot
  3. Open solution file from that folder

P.S. Update for Visual Studio Extension will be release with new version of cTrader. It works with Visual Studio 2015 and 2017.

Kind Regards,
Andrey
