Yet another visual studio plugin related question!

Hi All,

New here, I have read and installed the plugin from this tutorial:

https://www.quantconnect.com/tutorials/open-source/backtesting-from-visual-studio

But it crashes VS2019 (When sending for backtesting, saving functionality works fine) , and although other people suggested that if you use VS2017 it will work, for me it doesn't. So I'm thinking to build the plugin myself and try that. But I cannot find plugin source code and project in LEAN (downloaded as ZIP from github), can you point out where I can find it please?

Hi there! This plugin was deprecated and removed from LEAN due to all the build issues with the different versions of VS. We've replaced it with Skylight which is a simple local tool for synchronizing with the cloud for now, and we'll extend to allow backtesting.

Hi Jared, Thanks for the prompt reply! That's cleared things out. I like Skylight!
