I am trying to use Visual Studio 2010 from the 2015 image and when I try to use the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ to run a solution it hangs. If I supply a bad arg, it will give me the usage information and also let me know that the trial has expired:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\" /asfhabc
Microsoft (R) Visual Studio Version 10.0.40219.1.
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. All rights reserved.
The evaluation period for Visual Studio Trial has ended.
Invalid Command Line. Unknown Switch : asfhabc.

I think this is the reason it is hanging when I try to build a solution.

    Thank you for letting us know. Filed this issue. We will update build worker images next week. Cannot provide a specific day, believe it should be done by the end of the next week.
