It is recommended that you confirm that you can create a Visual C++ project before the workshop.

First, start Visual Studio and click "File"-> "New"-> "Project".
Select Visual C++ for the template and select Empty project .


After entering the project name and clicking OK, a Visual C++ project is created.

If you cannot select Visual C++ , install "Desktop development with C++" according to the procedure of How to install Visual Studio Community 2019.

Also, when using other than Visual Studio 2019, it is recommended to confirm that you can create a Visual C++ project just in case.
