I just installed the latest update to the VS 2019 Preview 16.9.0 Preview 1. It wiped out the latest Intel Fortran integrations and when I reinstalled it -- it still did not work.
I got the old standby error - unable to load project file. Even reload did not work.
I wiped all of the Intel Stuff.
I installed VS 2019 and then reinstalled the Intel Fortran.
I could not open magni2019 in the preview until I had opened it in VS 2019 standard and reloaded it and then it worked in the preview.
I realize most people do not use this version - but Intel may have a small (0.000001%) interest.

VS 2019 preview, 2019 and 2017 all update on a regular cycle measured in weeks not the months of old.
Achieving NASA TRL 9 means you have something running for a whole year. This is not easy remotely.
