Environment Variables for running apps at the console shell. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I may have noticed the developers released Visual Studio 2019 to the market for download for all editions.  Great news for us.

    I may have some common issues with some interpreters and compilers; namely, Visual Basic's. 

    What I want to know and if it is okay to perform this task to set up environment variables for Visual Basic compiler?

    So far, the name of the executable is vbc.exe with others within a specified folder.

    What I have is Notepad++, a third-party app, that enables to save as multiple programming language extensions as long as its feasible with their designated platforms and their respected versions.

    Is that possible?

    There is a Visual Studio question so I'm moving your question to the Visual Studio general forum. Also you can ask via this link/button in Visual Studio.

  • Hi JohnDBCTX,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    After research, I found we cannot set up environment variable for visual basic compiler, sorry for this inconvenience.

    If you really want the setting to visual basic, please share this suggestion to the VS Product Team in here: Thank you for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
