Microsoft Word has this option to get extra debugging info for Office VSTO solutions:

I cannot locate this option in Microsoft Visio in this location or under Add-ins in the Options menu.

Is there any way to turn this on in Visio? Thank you for your help!

    Hi @VB.NET Developer VSTO & more
    What version of Visio did you use?
    I found this feature is not available in Visio, you can also get the same result from this thread:

    In my opinion, you can try to give a feedback about this feature in Visio:
