Problem creating project for Visual Studio with ESP-IDF platform for wRower board

I am following the instructions to create a project with ESP-IDF with Visual Studio IDE for a TTGo T8 V1.7.1 card. Following issues 2591and 2972 on espressif github (sorry for missing links but I am not allowed to include more than 2 links as new user ?!?), I choose WROWER board and specified patform ESP-IDF to avoid installing Arduino-ESP32. Error message says that Error: this board doesn't support ESP-IDF framework contrary to board info on PIO:

$ platformio project init --ide visualstudio --board esp-wrover-kit --project-option "framework=ESP-IDF"

The current working directory D:\Gabriel\DevHardware\MyEStation\sw\Test will beused for the project.

How should I install my board to integrate with Visual Studio and ESP-IDF ?

P.S. Do I need to adjust memory some where ? WROVER has only 320 KB of memory while TTGO T8 should support more external RAM (11512 KB ?) given the memory chips mounted (IPUS IPS6404LSQ & Winbond 25Q32JV).

You have to abide by the naming rules of PIO, if you look into

You’ll see it’s framework = espidf, not ESP-IDF. Also double check that that’s the only framework = line in the platformio.ini then.

Thank you.

$ platformio project init --ide visualstudio --board esp-wrover-kit --project-option "framework=espidf"

works. This solved the issue.

I am still having problems with running the demo. Update: I have created a [new issue]
(Visual Studio + ESP-IDF; Unable to start program platform io).
