Visual Studio 2015 + OF, examples not compiling, windows.h not found

Hi,

Just trying to boot up an example in VS2015, and getting windows.h not found, tried to follow steps on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12748896/cannot-open-windows-h

And the two answers that have been given (in 2014), both the tabs have been removed, “Project->References->C/C+±>General->Additional Include Directories” this path/tab doesn’t exist!

had another search and saw about C++ redist’s, and so I downloaded them and the installer says I have another version already installed, could that be causing the problems?

Do I need the windows SDK? what other dependencies are required for getting an example running?

I’ve never had this problem.
I’ve followed the setup guide
http://openframeworks.cc/setup/vs/
and every thing always works.
The only step you have to had to this is to create a c++ project when you first run vs2015 as It does not come with c++ .
When you create a c++ project vs2015 start automatically the installation of the necessary file to develop in c++

@taprik yeah I followed that guide too, I had much smoother sailing setting up qtCreator, all examples ran fine. I think it’s to do with the C++ redistributables, I remember having to install a specific one a while ago to get a version of max or maya to work. I’m gonna blame autodesk!
