How to setup visual studio 2013 & 3DExp to make VSTA macro

Hello all,
I am trying to do some investigation on the capabilities of VSTA macro in 3DExperience 2018x.
My issue is any time I launch the test code it crash.
I had just create a simple VSTA library :

Then I open it and I have this code :

CODE --> C#

using System;

namespace Macro_library_VSTA00000003_vst_1891079_00000003_A_1
  public sealed partial class ThisApplication : ObjectModelAgentLib.CATIAEntryPoint
     public static void CATMain()
        // Debug entry point, not visible from the host
        CATIA.SystemService.PrintToStdout("Hello, World! C#");

The I click on the Start button in VS after like 30s VS close itself with no message and nothing is shown in the 3DExp app. Same behaviour with .NET code.

Do you guys know what should I look at ? May be I miss a setup to be able to test my code.

Thank you.

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
