I am trying to run the debugger in Visual Studio and get an error that Visual Studio can't find RackAFX.pdb. It is searching for it in `C:\RackAFX_v7\DSPKit 2.4 - RAFX2\Win32\Release\RackAFX.pdb`. I am using Visual Studio 2019

This is only required if you are trying to step into RackAFX code, across the thunk barrier. You would get the same message when using any other DAW to debug your native AU, AAX or VST3 plugin. 

You do not need, and I do not provide, the RackAFX.pdb file for debugging your plugin completely. I debug VS2019 and RackAFX all the time so it is fully functioning.
