    Hi @An Thuyen, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Does your VS work before? Could you tell us how you change the path in variables?

    To confirm it again, please search "Edit the system environment variables" in Windows Search box > Open it > Environment Variables… > ensure you select System variables not User variables > select Path > Edit….

    Besides, please check your System environment variables if there is the following path to dotnet:

    C:\Program Files\dotnet 

    You can try to launch your Visual Studio 2022 in Safe Mode (run devenv /SafeMode in Developer Command Prompt for VS 2022) and check that the project is created properly.

    You added msbuild.exe, a program, to your path. That is always the wrong answer. The path variable is for paths, not files. Irrelevant you shouldn't be adding a path to msbuild in any case as it'll mess things up. Remove that msbuild reference from your path and reboot.

    After you've rebooted then start VS and try to create a project. To narrow down the issue try to create the following items, one by one.

    • Blank solution
    • Windows Forms (NET Framework)
    • Windows Forms App - the NET Core version
    • ASP.NET Core Web App
