Yesterday I received notice of the update, w_psxecompf_2019.6.074 and installed it. I can now create new Fortran projects but all old projects do not load.
On starting VS, I am told of an exception due to an extension but I cannot attach the activity log, (even after renaming .xml to .txt) so here is the final <entry> and the only <entry> that appears to report any error
<entry> <record>661</record> <time>2020/03/25 08:38:12.342</time> <type>Error</type> <source>Editor or Editor Extension</source> <description>System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

Visual studio seems to be objecting to the .vfproj files and solution explorer reports each project as "incompatible"
I am running VS Enterprise 2017 version 15.9.16
Fully updated Windows 10 64 bit
On new projects, compiler reports "Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler 188.8.131.524 [Intel(R) 64]..."
Please, please tell me I do not have to create new projects and solutions ab initio
Thanks in anticipation
Dear Dr Fortran (Ret.)
Thanks, yes, you pointed me in the right direction - to cut a tedious story short - uninstalling led me to notice that the update was for 19.0.xxx but I had already installed 19.1.xxx so I had installed an older version over the top of a newer version. Perhaps I have been home/inside too long.
Thanks again, & trusting you are well,
