.NET Core debugger adapter installation failed



Looking for some help here. I have recently installed Rider and did some testing with standard .Net Framework console applications and everything worked as expected. However when I created a .Net Core Console App I'm unable to debug it.

Whenever I try to start a debug session it fails with: "Error running ConsoleApp: .NET Core debugger adapter installation failed. See Event log for details"

I am, however, able to run the app without issue, just not debug it.I tried searching Event viewer for an entry related to this (per the error message) but I was unable to find anything that seemed to relate to this.

Could it be a compatibility issue? I have VS2017 installed. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. 

Note: I'm running on Win10, using dnxcore50
