As well please note that scans will still detect this if you exclude the file but running the file will work. To fully remove the issue follow

Hi @Miller 

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Kindly check quarantined items in McAfee UI for the visual studio file.exe. As it is being detected by McAfee, try excluding the .exe file of visual studio and try accessing the program and let us know the outcome. 

Regards
