After adding P4VS plugin to MVS 2017 15.5.0 I try to connect to perforce using the P4VS toolbar.

When doing so a P4VS message pops up:
"Unable to find an entry point named "ReleaseString" in DLL 'p4bridge.dll'"

Of course the connection fails.

Any help would be appreciated...

How was P4VS installed? (via download and running the vsix installer, or from within the Visual Studio Extension Manager). That error would indicate that either that dll is missing, or is out of date. I'm unsure how that could happen, but it might be worth trying to uninstall and reinstall the plugin.

When you attempt to connect with the toolbar, are you selecting a previously saved connection from that dropdown, or attempting to open a <New Connection> ?

P4VS was installed from within the Visual Studio Extension Manager. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin but to no avail.
When I connect with the toolbar I try to open a <New Connection>.

thanks
