    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Please first check if you are opening a C++ file or opening a C++ project in Visual Studio 2019. Visual Studio doesn’t support debugging/running a single C++ file.

    If you are opening a C++ file in VS, then please try to create a C++ project(File > New > Project > choose a C++ project template), for example C++ Console project and copy the code to the .cpp file in this newly created project, set the breakpoints to debug/run your project. Please also make sure that you have installed Desktop development with C++ workload in VS Installer > Modify > Workload tab.

    If you are opening a C++ project in VS, then please go to Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > Build And Run > MSBuild project build output verbosity and set it to Detailed, then try to build your project(Build > Build Solution/Rebuild Solution) and check if there’s any error in VS Output Window.

    If the issue persists, could you please share us some screenshots to check further?
