Many build systems use environment variables to drive behavior; debug targets sometimes need to have PATH customized to ensure their dependencies are found; etc. Visual Studio has a mechanism to customize environment variables for debugging and building CMake projects and C++ Open Folder. In Visual Studio 2019 16.4 we made some changes to simplify this across Visual Studio’s JSON configuration files.
