When is the updated version of reflector for VS 2017 supposed to be released? I waited for it for the last few months now and it's still not out. I haven't been able to use this VS add in that I purchased because of some problem in your VS plugin. The .NET REFLECTOR menu item shows up in VS2013, however, the drop down looks different than what is shown on the product page. The only options are .NET REFLECTOR Object Browser, Clear the cache, GotoDefinition (F12), Track Loaded Modules, Disable Just my code on startup, Decompile from Call Stack, and Help...but clicking on any of these except the help about....shows a popup messagebox ... "Object reference net set to an instance of an object".
I checked in the logs for the plugin and there is nothing useful and even tried attaching another visual studio to it and set a breakpoint on MessageBox to try to see what the problem is but it never breaks?

Also launched VS with /log and looked in the log file and only have this:
<entry>

</entry>

Also tried setting the log levels in LoggingConfiguration.xml to INFO or debug, but I only have this each time it crashes:

This is the list of output from the attached debugging section using the second copy of Visual Studio (2017) attached to the first (2013) where the plugin is loaded an failed:
