Missing vcvarsall.bat in VS.NET 2005 Command Prompt

I took a few moments to dig into a nagging problem this weekend.  Seems that whenever I launched the Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt, I received an error message indicating that a file called vcvarsall.bat couldn’t be found.  A thorough search of the Visual Studio 8 directory found nothing of that name, although there was the old standby of vsvars32.bat. I took a further search through ladybug and I see that it had already been reported and marked as fixed for the release version. If you find this annoying, there is a workaround available.  The details can be found at http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/productfeedback/ViewWorkaround.aspx?FeedbackID=FDBK24480#2, but it works out to be either install C++ or change the shortcut for the command prompt to run vsvars32.bat.
