Can you support pre- and post increment operators for C#, but convert them to a full i = i + 1 in VB (or i += 1, which is supported)?
The pre- and post semantics would be gone, but that's what you get for wanting to use unsupported operators.
Maybe you could show a warning if you have those operators and target VB.

On a side note, I never use pre- and post increment operators and you can do completely without.
They're not THAT convenient and can be confusing if you don't fully understand them (everyone else on the team).
Even the people who say they understand it actually don't (in fact, I'm not even sure if I do).
For example, I wasn't able to predict the outcomes in this quiz[^] for the increment operators (I wonder how well you score!).
As far as I know you can choose to not support them and still do everything you want, but with less ambiguity.
