I am trying to open a project via ftp and I get this message -

ftp://192.169.156.9 : error : Error opening web ftp://192.169.1.119. Unable to open the Web site 'ftp://192.169.1.119'. The components for communicating with FTP servers are not installed.

But I am completely clueless how to install "The components for communicating with FTP servers"

Please help. I am using Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 Preview (64-bit)

    I am using VS 2022 and I have the same problem,
    I have installed Visual C ++ 2015-2022 Redistributable Packages but this does not solve the problem.

    I moved back to VS 2019.

    I've been searching for an answer to this question for a while. I installed Visual Studio Community Edition 2022 (ARM version) on my M2 MacBook Pro running Windows 11 ARM on Parallels. In my case, the issue is related to using ARM versions. Visual Studio 2019 is also installed and runs in x64 emulation mode and FTP works fine. I have installed the C++ Redistributable ARM version but that didn't help. There must be some other ARM components I need to install to get it to work but I can't figure out what they are. I'm using VS 2019 until I find out what I need.
