The build step method JetBrains.AppBrowser.DotTraceShell.Starter.DotTraceHostInstaller::DotTraceShellLauncher has thrown an exception. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Hi Ricardo,

Please try the following:
1. Close VS and rename the %appdata%\Visual Studio Setup\user.json file, let's say into user2.json (alternatively just move the file to another folder),
2. Install R# and dot-tools,
3. Rename that file back to the original user.json.
