Intel Advisor Extension crashes Visual Studio 2017 when opening solution containing a Python + C++ project

Visual Studio Professional 2017 (version 15.9.22 and 15.9.23) crashes when trying to open a solution containing an "Empy C++" project and a "Python Application" project when Intel Advisor Extension (version 2020 Update 1) is installed and enabled.

To reproduce the issue:

- Enable Intel 2020 Advisor Extension in Tools > Extensions and Updates...
- Create a new "Empty C++" project;
- Added to the created solution a new "Python Application" project;
- Save and Close Visual Studio;
- Try to open the solution again and VS will crash after a couple of seconds with a memory access location error;

The workaround is obviously to disable the Intel Advisor Extension.

What I have also done without success:

- Uninstalled and re-installed Visual Studio 2017;
- Uninstalled and re-installed Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition for Windows (version 2020 Update 1);

I am running Windows 10 version 1909.
