VS Doesn't Find PlatformIO

I have a PC with Windows 10. I’ve tried running VS 2019 and 2022, but neither is able to locate platform.io in the Extensions finder. Do I need to add a tools repository or something?

Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code?

Visual Studio integration doesn’t go via an extension, you have to have access to the PlatformIO core CLI and export the Visual Studio project files per Visual Studio — PlatformIO latest documentation.

For Visual Studio Code, there is an extension registered. This extension is not visible in the “OSS” version, only in the regular Microsoft version.

Thank you. That was exactly the problem. I had no idea there existed VS and VSC and those two things were different animals. (Would be good for Platform.io to have a note in their install docs.) I’m in business now. TY!
