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"

Hey BimbawZ-

This error is due to the default settings of VS 2015 when installing. If you find Visual Studio 2015 in "Uninstall a program" you can choose to modify the installation. After choosing Modify You can expand the drop-down for Programming Languages as well as the drop-down for Visual C++. if you check the box next to Visual C++ it will select all of the items in this section, however the most important one is "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015". Make sure that this box is check and click update/next. Once VS has updated you should be able to create a code project.

Cheers

Doug Wilson
