visual studio 2022: missing vcruntime.h

Bostjan Vilfan 0 Reputation points

I want to build an application whose instructions state that it

needs Visual Studio 2015 or higher. So I installed the Community

version of Visual Studio 2022 (on Windows 10) and attempted the

build. The result was that cl.exe could not find the file vcruntime.h. I performed a search for this file, and it was not on my computer.

How should I fix my Visual Studio installation to get vcruntime.h to

be installed?

    Did you select the "Desktop development with C++" workload during installation? The files are usually located in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2022\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\<version-specific-folder>\include". Check if a new "Windows Desktop Application" in C++ can be created and compiled successfully.
