  • Question

  • As suggested by the title, I'm having problems building any C++ project in my Visual Studio 2012 installation. A couple of people have asked this then been asked to try build from command line. I'm a technical retard, therefore need some advice on how to go about this. Alternatively, it could be useful if someone has encountered this recently. Here are the last few things I've done:

    Installed QT and the VS extension.

    Removed QT and the VS extension.

    Uninstalled VS completely.

    Reinstalled VS completely.

    All to no avail. Any takers?

  • Thank you for your reply. It looks like it was an issue with my PATH environment variable. I did (a long time ago) work using MinGW, and it appears that in the changes I made to set my PATH variable for that, I set it incorrectly and all trailing paths were broken. I don't see how it's only just taken effect, but it might be because I haven't closed Visual Studio in a few months.

    Cheers for your assistance
