    I'm trying to use Visual Studio Code to program simple C files and after installing C/C++ extension it could not find include c header/s path. After editing the json file and installing Clang it still could not find the stdio header. I usually simply use Geany4Windows with MINGW GCC path, but adding that path that doesn't work either. So, I have just installed Windows Kit 10 and hope this works with the include path C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Include\10.0.16299.0\ucrt
    and will finally fix this (I saw this suggested on StackOverflow). It has worked (Windows programming can be so frustrating with simple errors or complex errors!). I will try some more C programming in this IDE and then venture forward to C++.............:-)

    Ok, Hello I first want to say thank you to all who had help in developing Visual Studios 2017. Very nice work! One thing I have noticed as a noob user, it that when I am trying to understand how to implement code in c++, I am completely lost. Don't get me wrong, I have no prior c++ experience. I do however create advanced algorithms, and systems. Complete noob in c++ though. One thing I would find being such a new user, that would be helpful is an about command tab.  For example, in the toolbox, I see many items. I am finding a lot of wasted time, trying to understand just what it is each item does. Is there a way of maybe adding an about command that will give a brief explanation about the toolbox item by right clicking on the item? Also I find that doing simple things like adding a file to open in a specific location,  or adding a file with instant tagging would be nice, if you already have these I greatly apologize, and will be seeking these. If not noobs everywhere would most likely be very thankful.

    I made an earlier comment about needing to add path to stdio.h for C programming (see comment above). While this allowed the code to run and produced an exe binary file, it still gave a warning that it could not find the path to vcruntime.h . I could not find that file anywhere in my Microsoft VisStudio program files (x86) folder and then noticed my Visual Studio Community 2017 edition did not have C++ support! So I installed Universal package in it and then found the path to file vcruntime.h (C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio/2017/Community/VC/Tools/MSVC/14.12.25827/include/*) which was added to the json cpp config file and the file compiled with no errors at last! Alleluiah...now to do some c++ programming in this Visual Studio Code IDE! :-)
