Issue with running Appium on VS(C#)- APK path issue

I am trying to setup & run appium (desktop OR CLI) via VisualStudio (C#) and i’m getting this error:
Appium Log:
[Appium] Appium v1.18.2 creating new AndroidUiautomator2Driver (v1.56.1) session

The apk path: ‘‪C:\Users\Yaniv\MMApp.apk’ is exist for 100% because if i’m running appium desktop without VS - it identifies the file. Also tested with file location- copy&paste leads to the apk.

Can anyone help me with this?
My code in VS:
` public void Setup()
var appPath = @“‪C:\Users\Yaniv\MMApp.apk”;

        var driverOptions = new AppiumOptions();
        driverOptions.AddAdditionalCapability(AutomationName.AndroidUIAutomator2, "Android");
        driverOptions.AddAdditionalCapability(MobileCapabilityType.PlatformName, "Android");
        driverOptions.AddAdditionalCapability(MobileCapabilityType.DeviceName, "Pixel 3a");
        driverOptions.AddAdditionalCapability(MobileCapabilityType.App, appPath);

        driverOptions.AddAdditionalCapability("chromedriverExecutable", @"‪C:\TestLogs\chromedriver.exe");

        _driver = new AndroidDriver<AndroidElement>(new Uri("http://localhost:4723/wd/hub"), driverOptions);

        _driver.FindElementByXPath("//android.widget.TextView[@text='User Name']").Click();
