Visual Studio Community Errors Prevent C++ Programming
Okay so I have been having trouble with pretty much every step of installing and using Visual Studio for Unreal since the very beginning. I understand that a lot can be done with the Unreal Visual Scripting however, my aim is to script using C++ simply because of the versatility and my past experience with other scripting programs such as C# for Unity and Python for Blender3D.
Unreal, or rather Microsoft VS has presented a problem for me and I hope someone can help me out here. First of all, when I try to install Microsoft VS Community, the installation always gets stuck at ASP.net. I leave it for hours and overnight but no progress is made. After research, people found solutions by tricking the computer into thinking it was shutting down to force the installation to the next step. That worked, and it got stuck somewhere else along the way. When it finally did finish, I was given these errors
I went to my control panel to see everything that was installed ad could not find these files. Maybe I was looking in the wrong place, but I went to repair the installation and this came up:
Same error messages. So despite that, and after multiple failed attempts of uninstalling and reinstalling, I decided "What the heck, let me go ahead and try to open it in Unreal." Obviously that wasnt going to work but I did it anyway.
When trying to create a C++ project, when it comes time to compile before opening the project, This comes up: link text
Also tried it on an example project and this text came up: link text
I can't find any working solution to this problem so I have come to the community for help. Hoping this can eventually be resolved and thanks in advance!

The Big One
My only guess is that while the installer can write to your registry it is having permission errors that prevent it from writing to your program folders. Are you running the installer as administrator and are you installing at the default location?
