In Tools -> Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt.

The command prompt in now part of power commands which can be installed using visual studio.
It would be a very good idea if anyone who installs visual studio is informed about these fundamental changes!

I found this on:

Ok thanks. This explains everything!

The command-prompt tool is pretty useful. Maybe it should be added to VS2010...

Martin, VS2010 does not have such command built in. But, there is one way it can appear in VS2010: if you had Visual Studio 2008 installed on the computer and had this command authored somehow - I see that VS2008 SP does not have this command in the "Tools->External Tools" either, if you have created this by hand or installed it by other means such as running a script or installing an extension etc., and when you first start VS2010, if you have left the option "Migrate my eligible settings from previous version..." (this option is selected by default) on first launch dialog, VS2010 would migrate this command as-is.

You can verify this by re-creating your user profile by "devenv /resetuserdata" and unselect the migrate settings option from first launch dialog. NOTE: you will have to run "devenv /resetuserdata" from Visual Studio 2010 command prompt and by doing this, you will lose any customizations you may have applied to VS2010. Post an update back to us if you see the Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt appears again after this step.

I have uploaded a screenshot. Note tha the menu item invokes the command line with the proper VS2010 environment. It's the menu item's label which is wrong.

I uninstalled VS2010 beta1 before installing VS2010 beta2. Could that be the source of the problem?
