If it doesn’t help,

Visual Studio 2005
Start Menu -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt

Visual Studio 2008
Start Menu -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt

Visual Studio 2010
Start Menu -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 -> Visual Studio Tools -> Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010)

    I went to both places in VS 2008, and it’s not listed there.

    Hi Tina, try logging in to your computer using administration account (or account with administration previlege).

    Hi tarun,

    There is no .exe file. The shortcut is pointing to .bat file.
    For example VS 2010 command prompt, when you check the shortcut property it points to %comspec% /k “”C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat”” x86

    Good luck!
