C++ Templates

    Question

  • I have been using Visual Studio 2015 Community to write Arduino apps, so I've installed the C++ tools, templates, etc as well as VisualMicro.  That all works fine.

    However, when I want to just write a simple C++ app using one of the basic templates like "Win32 Console Application", I'm unable to create a project.  I click on template, enter the project name, and directory (Visual Studio 2015\Projects\, the window disappears for a fraction of a second and then reappears without creating a project.  There is no error message.

    What's happening?

  • Perhaps you have an add-in that is misbehaving.  Try launching Visual Studio in safe mode to disable add-ins and see if the problem goes away.

    devenv.exe /SafeMode

  • Hi friend,

    I just found this issue could be resolved by following:

    Open an existing C++ project in the VS -> right-lick project name -> reload project

    After above operations, a popup will show and you could just click to install the features shown on it which is related to C++ in VS2015.

    In my side the below were selected:

    And i think you could also find and install these by modify the VS , control panel -> programs-> right-click VS -> change

    Best regards,

    Fletcher
