I am getting this error and it is really annoying.

I can't use visual studio ide because of it.

I have tried updating vs22.

I have tried using the repair option. (twice)

I have tried reinstalling vs22.

Tried disabling antivirus.

Tried installing vs19.

Tried installing vs22 preview.

Nothing worked.

And I tried searching for a solution online, it seems I am the only one facing this problem.

I have used vs22 for more than 3months now, and this error only showed up like last week.

I don't know how to provide more information about this error, if I missed anything please let me know.

I would appreciate any suggestion!
