'corect.h' file not found: Projucer error

I get this error:

‘corecrt.h’ file not found

From the Projucer.

I am using Windows 10 and an audio plug-in.

I have been trying to find a way to change the Visual Studio library version but I can’t get this to work.

I just installed Visual Studio libraries for Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2019 and I tried creating a new audio plugin project and I have the same error.

Any advice? Thanks.

The “corecrt.h” file is part of the “Universal CRT SDK” Visual Studio component.
You have to install this component which isn’t included in the obligatory or recommended “Desktop C++” settings.
Really bothersome because is very bloated too.

OldApprentice thanks for the tip, I have already installed the universal CRT SDK from the Visual Studio installer. Do I need to somehow point JUCE to the installed files?

That’s odd. VS and its build tool-chain should do the rest.
Have you tried to create again the project files from the Projucer?

What’s your specific VS version? 2019, Windows 10 SDK version,…

I realized my export target was CLion and not Visual Studio, I fixed that and it works now
