switch /useenv in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

It seems the option '/useenv' is no longer supported in in Microsoft
Visual .NET 2005. If I run 'devenv /?' I get the following:

Microsoft (R) Visual Studio Version 8.0.50727.42.
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2005. All rights reserved.

devenv [solutionfile | projectfile | anyfile.ext] [switches]

The first argument for devenv is usually a solution file or project
You can also use any other file as the first argument if you want to
have the
file open automatically in an editor. When you enter a project file,
the IDE
looks for an .sln file with the same base name as the project file in
parent directory for the project file. If no such .sln file exists,
then the
IDE looks for a single .sln file that references the project. If no
such single
..sln file exists, then the IDE creates an unsaved solution with a
default .sln
file name that has the same base name as the project file.

Command line builds:
devenv solutionfile.sl n /build solutionconfig [ /project
projectnameorfi le [ /projectconfig name ] ]
Available command line switches:

/Build Builds the solution or project with the specified solution
configuration. For example "Debug". If multiple platforms
are possible, the configuration name must be enclosed in quotes
and contain platform name. For example: "Debug|Win3 2".
/Clean Deletes build outputs.
/Command Starts the IDE and executes the command.
/Deploy Builds and then deploys the specified build configuration.
/Edit Opens the specified files in a running instance of this
application. If there are no running instances, it will
start a new instance with a simplified window layout.
/LCID Sets the default language in the IDE for the UI.
/Log Logs IDE activity to the specified file for troubleshooting .
/NoVSIP Disables the VSIP developer's license key for VSIP testing.
/Out Appends the build log to a specified file.
/Project Specifies the project to build, clean, or deploy.
Must be used with /Build, /Rebuild, /Clean, or /Deploy.
/ProjectConfig Overrides the project configuration specified in the
configuration. For example "Debug". If multiple platforms are
possible, the configuration name must be enclosed in quotes
and contain platform name. For example: "Debug|Win3 2".
Must be used with /Project.
/Rebuild Cleans and then builds the solution or project with the
specified configuration.
/ResetAddin Removes commands and command UI associated with the
specified Add-in.
/ResetSettings Restores the IDE's default settings, optionally resets
the specified VSSettings file.
/ResetSkipPkgs Clears all SkipLoading tags added to VSPackages.
/Run Compiles and runs the specified solution.
/RunExit Compiles and runs the specified solution then closes the IDE.
/SafeMode Launches the IDE in safe mode loading minimal windows.
/Upgrade Upgrades the project or the solution and all projects in it.
A backup of these files will be created as appropriate. Please
see Help on 'Visual Studio Conversion Wizard' for more
information on the backup process.

Product-specific switches:
To attach the debugger from the command line, use:
VsJITDebugger.e xe -p <pid>

please note that the section "Product-specific switches:" is empty.

If I run 'devenv /useenv' I get:

Microsoft (R) Visual Studio Version 8.0.50727.42.
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-2005. All rights reserved.

Invalid Command Line. Unknown Switch : useenv.

Looking on the internet I found that also in 2005 '/useenv' is
supported and in the help text written by 'devenv /?' there should be
'useenv' listed among product-specific switches.

What is wrong with my installation?
