Visual Studio Launcher - Open a projects and files in VS via context menu
Provides a command in the context menu of both the file explorer and file editor to open that file in Visual Studio. If the file is a project or solution file (vcproj, vcproj, vbproj, sln), the Visual Studio project or solution will be opened as opposed to the file itself (unlike other similar extensions on the marketplace).
The location of your Visual Studio installation and the IDE executable is attemtped to be found automatically. In most cases, if you have only a single VS installation, and you installed to the default installation directory,this works fine. If you have more than one version of VS installed, the file is opened with the first version located. If you did not install to a default location, the installation directory will not be found. In either case, you can explicity set the location of your VS IDE executable in Settings.
