    Hi CVKurniaLajuAbadi-6296,
    Did you restart VS after the initial installation?
    And I have some suggestions you can refer to.

    1. Restart VS.
    2. Open Visual Studio Installer, drop down "More" button and repair your VS.
    3. Open Visual Studio Installer, modify your installation and reinstall the ‘.Net Desktop Development’ workload.
    4. If not succrssful, you can try the Hooman's solution.
      Best Regards,
      Daniel Zhang
