I found something that might help with this:

I was running into some similar problems when I generated an empty project and then set it to console when I was using VS 2017. I got around this by creating a non-empty console project in Visual Studio and adding my files to it. This is how my overall project looks like now:

Here also is the top of my header for my main.cpp file:

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include "main.h"

It is possible that if you go with the general setup (i.e. include stdafx.h in your headers) your header compiler error will go away (like the top answer in the link I sent you seemed to indicate).

Good luck!

I fixed it with disabling it, thank you for your help
