How-to: Add Visual Studio Command Prompt To Visual Studio
As you know my daily work is highly depending on Visual Studio Team Foundation Services, so when Visual Studio 2017 was released, I immediately installed it and continued my work as before. It's one of those great things of Visual Studio: I high up - and downward compatibility. It makes me smile.
Nevertheless there are always a couple of things that I need to reinstall to have my setup the way I want it. Among them:
Make Araxis the default compare tool. You might recall of wrote a small post on this, primarily to remind myself.
Add Diff All Files plug-in. Great tool, waiting eagerly for the 2017 version. But deadlydog is a fast one to get it update.
Add the Visual Studio Command Prompt, the topic of this post. Also a reminder for myself.
Add Visual Studio Command Prompt
For this I lately used Steve Fenton's post Add Visual Studio Command Prompt To Visual Studio 2015. Straightforward to implement. However for 2017 it needs some tweaking with respect to the argument:
Open Visual Studio 2017
Go to Tools > External Tools...
Click Add and enter the following information into the new tool screen
The Visual Studio Command Prompt will now be available in: Tools > Visual Studio Command Prompt
