If I open a solution that contains one or more fortran project, Visual Studio 2019 open a 'floating' blank window that I cannot close.
If the solution does not include fortran project the windows is not displayed.
I have the last Visual Studio 2019 Community edition and Parallel Studio XE 2019 Update 5.
I think David found a solution: https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-fortran-compiler/topic/821211
It seems to be related to VS2019. Never heard this for VS2017.
