I'm relatively new as well and had the same problem a few weeks ago.
In my case, Al.exe is part of .NET Framework 4.8 SDK.
So I solved the problem by going back to the Visual Studio Installer
and modifying the installation
to include .NET Framework 4.8 SDK. I chose this because it was the
latest version available on my installer.
Also, be sure to include Windows Universal C Runtime.
I found out that when I chose "Desktop development with C++" workload,
.NET Framework 4.8 SDK
and Windows Universal C Runtime were not included. You can go to the
"Individual components" tab in
the "Modifying" window and select them manually.
Hope this helps.
