      Description

      Hi,

      I have moved the Visual Studio 2019 folder to a more adequate location (to my liking) than the default Documents/Visual Studio 2019, using the workaround presented in this SO answer: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42703179/how-to-change-visual-studio-2017-folder-location

      This works fine, except when I install (or re-install) Qt Vs Tools, this directory is created again each time I start VS2019, containing only Visualizers/qt5.natvis.

      It looks like Qt Vs Tools does not rely on the VisualStudioLocation registry setting to place the Visualizer file.

      Thanks in advance for looking into this!
