    Since you met a new issue which is different with the original one, and usually we discuss one issue in one thread, that can help us to deeply research and trace this issue. Our forum is to discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor, and your issue is more relates to the debug or development issue, I need your help to confirm some information as below:

    1. What’s your project type

    2. Does this issue happens to all projects or new project

    3. Before you debug your project, have you insert any breakpoint into your project

    4. Could you please share the screenshot of your issue in here

    Refer to the above detail information, I will discuss with other support colleagues to confirm which support forum is better for you to seek for a more professional support, and it will also help you to quickly solve this issue, thank you for your support and understanding.

  • Hi Bakar.mee,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    >> Now tell me what or from where should i install that tools for visual c++

    After your initial VS installation, you can go to Control Panel—Programs and Features, right click the VS 2015 and Change-Modify, then you will find the option ‘Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015’ under Visual C++ and check this option like the following screenshot, click the ‘UPDATE’ button to install this component. This component is a custom component during the VS installation, which we can know it from this: Install Visual Studio 2015

    Meanwhile, there have some installation tips that you can follow, like make sure windows update is up-to-date, temporarily disable any antivirus software and clean up the %temp% folder, then run the installer as administrator to modify the installation.

    If the installation is fail, I need your help to the installation log. Please use http://aka.ms/vscollect to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.zip under %temp% folder. Please upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.

    Best regards,

    Sara
