Why is my prject not using the files in External Dependencies folder?

Robert VERMEULEN 1 Reputation point

Hi, I am currently developing new software using Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 community. I have created a new empty project for C++. All of my code is written and is correct, the issue that I have is that I have 465 Errors. Almost all of them have to do with my project not being able to open the source files of any of the auto generated files located in the External Dependencies folder. I have tried to copy them and use them in the project source folder, but it wont allow me to do so. Will someone please tell me what I need to do to somehow link the External Dependencies folder, or just how to get my project to use the files withing it?
