We will be working on this. Please expect an update by June timeframe.

This may be a bit pre-mature, but I'd "really" like to see the VSAE's MP Simulator updated to support JIT debugging of embedded PowerShell scripts (currently it only works for VBS scripts). See 40:30 thru 41:37 of:
I'm writing embedded PowerShell scripts in my MPs and have to log everything to the event viewer for troubleshooting. Currently real-time debugging of PowerShell scripts can only be accomplished by using PowerShell ISE. Setting breakpoints, using watch-values, and stepping through scripts would be awesome to do through the MP Simulator's JIT handler. Perhaps this ask is more of a request for enabling either VS or PowerShell ISE as a registered JIT debugger for PowerShell scripts, without any further changes needed to the MP Simulator.
I might be naive, but what is the reason this is not done out of the box actually? SCOM is a good product, VS too, they both come from the same vendor, and there shouldn't be much work in getting this to work in VS2017. Keeping my 2 installations on VS because VSAE just happens not to be supported is a serious overkill. I wish I could vote more on that.

Please do not advise us to use Silect software's solution, as it is inadequate at many tasks. We all went through this with Visual Studio 2015, in which you said that you wouldn't continue to develop the product, but did eventually release it for Visual Studio 2015. If you don't wish to continue this with each release of Visual Studio, please open source it and let the community take it over.
