Failed to generate project files

Whenever I try to generate any C++ project I get the error in the title. Some of the other posts relating to this suggests that it’s due to not having Visual Studio installed. I’ve got Visual Studio 2012 professional installed. Do I need the express edition? If not, how can I fix this?

Hi Aptann,

Visual Studio 2013 is required for programming on Windows. Please see the Required Hardware & Software Documentation page for additional information.


Ah right, I should have read those other posts more carefully, my bad. Thanks!
