Error Generating Project Files

I didn’t know where to put this, but it only occurs when creating a C++ project, so I put it here. When I try to create C++ project, it gives me this error:
An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

Any ideas as to what might cause this? I’m assuming it is a visual studio error, but any input is appreciated.

Looks like you have no 64 bit compiler installed. It is required to compile C++ projects.
