MacOS catalina. VSCode 1.47.3.ExtendScript Debugger 1.1.2.
Nothing happens when I click on 'Select the target Application' in the status bar.
The following message appears in the Log(Window).

ExtendScript is a 32-bit app and wont run on Catalina . The alternative is Visual Studio running the ExtendScript Debugger extension.
Thanks, but VSCode and ExtendScript **Debugger** which is what I am using are 64bit apps and purported to run on Catalina.
Sorry, I read too fast and missed the VS part.
I haven‘t used Visual Studio that much, so maybe someone else will jump in. If you are just starting try restarting after you install the ExtendScript Extension, and maybe uninstall the 32-bit ExtendScript Toolkit app if it is still in your Application folder. Before debugging save your .js file in a work folder. Also make sure you choose an engine (main) and language as well as the target application:
Thanks for your suggestions.
I have never run ESTK on this computer.
I have tried manually setting "targetspecifier" and have used a number of different guesses, but each time I get an alert window
with the following message:
TypeError: Cannot read property 'label' of undefined
As I said, I have tried a number of guesses. Examples, "acrobat-20.064", "/Applications/Adobe Acrobat DC/Adobe Acrobat.app/Contents/MacOS/AdobeAcrobat", "acrobat-2020.009.20074"
If anyone has any suggestions for what to try for Acrobat Pro DC, I would love to give it a try.
Here is output I get when I specify a "targetspecifier" before the undefined error.
If your code is for Acrobat might be better to ask in the Acrobat forum.
There is no forum for Adobe ExtendScript Debugger.
I posted here because this forum seems to have the most interest in this product.
Adobe Acrobat isn’t listed as a target application in my Visual Studio Code.
I've been unable to get the ExtendScript Debugger working either, with the exact same symptoms, clicking "Select the target application" does nothing. Filling in targetSpecifier results in a panel appearing saying target application isn't running, start it: yes, then a dialog saying "TypeError: Cannot read property 'label' of undefined"
I'm writing a script for Photoshop and not Acrobat, this is a specific ExtendScript VSCode extension issue. Where is the support forum for that? Saying to go to an app specific forum is pointless as I'm not even getting that far.
