    IMHO there are no suitable extensions for VB.NET in Visual Studio Code. Note this one looks good but is no longer maintained which is not good especially when the author remove the GitHub repository.

    I ran into a similar issue with a retired language extension but forked the repo and now maintain it. You can't do that with the one above unless you can fork the repo which is gone and if not gone would need Type Script skills.
