I am running the C++ tutorials in Visual Studio 2019. I just opened the solution, and VS can't find any of the common C++ headers (float.h, assert.h, string.h, etc)
Is there an easy fix? I found something online about deleting the hidden vs folder in the project root, but this didn't help.
I tried opening in VS 2015, but still get the common header error. I have been through tracing these problems down before on projects, and I know there must be a simple fix in the project settings. I just don't want to go int the wrong direction. Can anyone give me an answer?

From what I understand you managed to compile the tutorial in debug after installing the debug kit but if you could let the community know how the issue with the common headers was solved it would be great.
