Creating a new C++ project with build tools installed for Visual Studio opens a command prompt to path C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools> instead of visual studio. Selecting File > Open Visual Studio in the editor also results in this behavior.



Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a new C++ project with build tools installed in Visual Studio

       2. Select File > Open Visual Studio


Result: Command line pop up attempting to open C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools>


Expected: Visual Studio to launch
