After a fresh install of VS 19 and or VS 22, upon creating a WPF project and not doing anything else on it, trying to launch it with debugging churns out "The debugger's worker process (msvsmon.exe) unexpectedly exited..." in Windows 11. So basically no Visual Studio works in Windows 11. I've tried to add the entire folders of VS installations, individual files as well including the msvsmon.exe to antivirus and antimalware exclusions, checked if 127.0.0.1 was still my localhost address, ran sfc /scannow, ran chkdsk and the host of DISM commands to check health and restore health, restarted the PC, shut it down and brought it on again, but seems like the only development software that still works from Microsoft is VS Code. This is so disappointing noting that this error has been around since 2015 versions of VS and is still there in the very latest VS 2022! Same with Windows itself, the famous volume icon disappearing is still a thing in Windows 11, after having reported this a million times since Windows 7 as a Windows Insider, I got tired of sending reports. Now I just ignore the blank volume screen and quietly use EarTrumpet. But must I also abandon Visual Studio and rework my projects in Delphi because that always works and has never churned out dumb errors like this. A debugger that doesn't work in an IDE?! really. Microsoft is really going down the tubes. The Windows 11 start menu is also another eyesore and can't be organized, resized or grouped and looks like last minute noodles... OMG. Even the Tags in this very form don't work... not surprising
