@RDI33054067w5ck  Note that if you are compiling your plugin in DEBUG mode, then you must install the debug version of InDesign (which is installed in a separate folder with a diffewrent name).

You will have to first join the prerelease program for InDesign SDK and then you will start seeing the Debug app in the Creative Cloud app for download.
