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:

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).
