  • Hi ZhuerZhuer,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Did you meet this issue recently or it happens after you installed VS 2015? If you can create C++ project before and this issue just occurs recently? Please have a try with the following to troubleshot this issue:

    1. Rename or delete the following folders:

    •C:\Users\<your users name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0

    •C:\Users\<your users name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0

    2. Open the VS 2015 installation location, usually locates C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE and run the following commands. After each command, reopen VS to check this issue.

    devenv /resetuserdata: clear the old user data

    devenv /safemode: run the VS as safe, if it works fine that means the installed extensions may be corrupted the VS, please go to Tool—Extensions and Updates… and remove all installed extensions one by one to find the culprit.

    devenv /setup

    3. Go to Control Panel—Programs and Features-Installed Updates and right click the VS 2015, choose Change-Repair, after repairing the VS 2015, please check this issue again.

    Refer to the error message, I found some community members solved it through the user environment variables for VCHOME, VSINSTALLDIR and vsinstallerdir, please have a look at this similar issue: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/279c09f3-5391-49c9-ac75-d6f6b921bd0f/visual-c-project-system-package-package-did-not-load-correctly?forum=vssetup and if those environment variables not existing on your computer, you can try to add them and reboot the computer to test this issue, if this method not works, please remove those newly created environment variable in case it affect other staffs.

    Best regards,

    Sara
