Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Got the solution. "In Visual Studio 2015, C++ tooling is no longer installed by default".

FIX While hte installation of VS choose custom instead of typical. Select other programming languages. In this case Visual C++ -> Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015. If you already installed VS2015 you can just download the web installer and start the setup again to modify your installation.

EDIT: Another guy posted a question today where he was unable to install the common tools while he was using the express installer. You'll need at least the "Community Edition" of Visual Studio.

Thank you. I was trying to open a 4.9 project with 4.10 preview and getting the same error. Your solution worked.
