I was just trying to run Visual Studio 2008 using a batch command.

Start Notepad.exe opens Notepad for me.

I am not sure how can I run Visual Studio 2008 the same way.

Can anyone help me with this?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Simply find Visual studio executable in Program Files / Program Files (x86) and do the same as you are doing with Notepad.

Probable Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio unless you've changed it upon installation.

There is a main executable there for sure.
