vstudio_open_file - what version of Visual Studio
« on: August 24, 2020, 08:36:07 pm »
In the help text:  Opens the current file in Visual Studio (2003 or 2005), optionally positioning
Yet, it launches VStudio 2019 for me.

How can I get it to pop up in VStudio 2013 (the one I'm currently running)?

What I'd really like is for it to have Chrome like behavior.
With Chrome, whatever Chome window was most recently active, when you follow a hyperlink (from a different app), it goes to the most recently active chrome window.

Improved this for beta 3. Previously it definitely didn't support Visual Studio 2019. Now it will look to see if Visual Studio 2019 is already running and open the file in the existing instance. Not sure if it works for Visual Studio 2017 because my installation doesn't seem to work.
