Fresh install of 2019. Went to run any of the command prompt links...got the error..
"Files was not expected at this time".
This was due to a quoted string in the environment variable VS160COMNTOOLS.
There is an
IF statement in the file vsdevcmd_start.bat that has the line
if "%VS160COMNTOOLS%" NEQ "" (
And this breaks with the quotes. I added this code to "delete the quotes" for the sake of this comparison ( and beyond )
call :remove_quotes VS160COMNTOOLS %VS160COMNTOOLS%
With that added, all of my "developer prompts" loaded again.
.. Please note, that batch file should be one statement per line, but I can't seem to format it here.
.. Also, you'll have to save it as admin, as the file vsdevcmd_start.bat lives in a "highly protected" area :D
