After Visual Studio Code installs, it opens. It shouldn't be like that if it's possible to avoid it with install switches IMO.

Proposed fix:

  • Add /MERGETASKS=!runcode to install parameters.

Log of install from today, showing that current install command does not have this in it:

Coming in to +1 and ressurect this subject. Can we please implement the extra command line so it no longer opens? I can confirm the command works fine in my environment. It would be nice to no longer have VSC open automatically on updates.
