1. You are supposed to give the path to the VS executable, not to the Shortcut in the Start Menu, that won't work. To find out the executable location, right click the Start Menu Shortcut and select "Open file location".
2. If the path to the executable contains spaces (it certainly will), it has to be double-quoted. ""
3. I'm pretty sure the VS doesn't use the -open parameter. It's just an example in the application, IF an application needs parameters. It is not mandatory.

I sued this also php "C:\Users\fende\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Visual Studio Code"
not working

I opened the location and copied the path to the program, for some reason it is installed under appadata and not under program files like any other
I also tried double quotes

php ""C:\Users\fende\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Visual Studio Code""

nothing works

I have opening files with notepad....it is useless

That's not the correct location. It's the location of the Shortcuts in the Start Menu. This is not where the program is actually installed to.

According to a web search, the install location might be "C:\Users\fende\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code", the line would need to be:

Code: Select all

php "C:\Users\fende\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\code.exe"


It could also be installed to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft VS Code", in this case the line needs to be:

Code: Select all

php "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe"
