Visual Studio Code Coverage

I am using Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise Edition. My goal is to find a way to determine, during run-time, what lines have been touch/covered to create baseline testcases. I am trying to test older legacy code that is not well configured for Unit Testing. My idea is to generate stimulus(Test Cases) on the fly using a recursive algorithm and a random seed. I need to monitor the change in test coverage based on the newly generated stimulus. When a new stimulus generates an increase in coverage, I will log the stimulus and continue the process until 85% coverage has been obtained or all possibilities are exhausted.
