Unable to load project in Visual Studio 2022 after update

Unable to load project or solution in Visual Studio 2022

Windows 10

After updating Visual Studio you are no longer able to load source files in your solution
Error message: Load failed, the project file cannot be loaded

The update has messed up you path settings as you have both 64bit and 32bit version of dotnet running

In the environment settings / system variables move the <drive>\program files\dotnet 64bit path above the <drive>\program files (x86)\dotnet 32bit path
Save and you are ready to use VS 2022 after having updated the platform to latest version

Open Control panel -> System and the Advanced System Settings

Choose Environment Variables

In System Variables edit the Path settings

Move the 64 bit dotnet path above the 32bit path

When done click Ok and restart VS 2022
