Error: No 32-bit compiler toolchain found. I need help here...

So I decided to get into the C++ language of ue4, and when I went to create a new C++ project (Basic code), I got an error message:

The project could not be compiled. Would you like to open it in Visual Studio?

I really don’t know how to solve this. :confused:
I’m using Unreal Engine V4.16.2, and I’m using VS2017.

Download and install this: http://landinghub.visualstudio.com/visual-cpp-build-tools

It includes VS2015 MSVC compiler toolset which I think is still required by UE4.

So I installed the VS2015 Compiler toolset, (at least, I think I did) and when I went into Unreal, It told me that I had to install visual studio 2017. However, I already have VS2017 installed and updated to the latest update. I don’t know if this matters, but I installed the build tools onto my G drive, instead of C.

UE4 does not require VS2017 on Windows. We are using 4.19 with VS2015 and it works fine.
