How I resolved problems on Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition

I had two issues not discussed in the lecture:

  1. Installing DirectX SDK ended in an error - I had to uninstall previous VC++ 2010 Runtimes (both x86 and x64) and then it succeeded
  2. After resolving include and lib paths, I was getting C1001 internal compiler error. I tried updating VS but that didn’t work. The solution was to change the Platform Toolset to Visual Studio 2015 (V140)

After that, I got the example to compile and run.


Thanks for sharing. This is tricky to resolve and any suggestions for less experienced developers is greatly appreciated.

if you prefer toolset to vs 2019, apply the same instruction and select this:
C/C++ → Code Generation → Enable Minimal Rebuild: No(/Gm-)


That worked! Thanks!

@Nenad_Miodrag Thank you! This was the only thing that worked for me (except I changed the Platform Toolset to Visual Studio 2017).

Big Thanks. I’ve tried all other solutions with no luck. this really solved the issue.

It’s always helpful when people share their solutions to problems, so others can benefit from their experience. As an alternative solution for those encountering issues with your programs on Windows 10. Did you know that you can find cheap windows keys from reliable communities?
