Spawning is what happens when one process starts another process.  You don't want to prevent spawning, you want to prevent the failure of spawning, so the process that is trying to run cl.exe can do so.

I suggest you search this topic area for the keywords "spawning cl.exe".  There are 19 questions with this phrase and probably one of them has information that will help you.

Sorry, I forgot that they don't let everyone search the site.  Some of the content is indexed in Google, as explained here:

I don't think there is just one solution.  The most popular solutions seem to be changing where Visual Studio looks for executable files or reinstalling it.  For more details, see:
