This is something we are looking into. But since Visual Assist is written partly in C++ we cannot just recompile it for ARM, we have to rework parts of VA, so its not as simple as it might be.

I would also like to see an ARM64 version! It is the last AddIn that I am still missing for a productive use of VS 2022-ARM64.

C++ code can be compiled easily for ARM64, as long as you don't use assembler modules or external libraries for which you don't have the source code.

My understanding is that .NET extensions can be moved to ARM quite easily. Remember our C++ code has its roots in supporting VC6. Still, this is definitely something we are keeping an eye on, and there does seem to be a fair bit of interest in this, which is good to know.

Your C++ code is already running on 64bit. Just create an ARM64 configuration (based on the x64 configuration) and hit the compile button. ;)

Something tells me it won't be quite that simple, but we can hope

It would be nice to have an ARM version. I would actually pay for that.

If you're interested in doing something different with your parser to make it more generic, I'd be willing to help you with it free of charge and under NDA if required.
