Q: I stuck in the section on setting up Visual Studio 2015 for use with the exercise files. Where is the "C/C++" section in the Property dialog?

A: There's a bug in Visual Studio 2015 which prevents the C/C++ section from appearing in an Empty project. In order to get to this section you will need to first add a C++ file to the project. Here's how to do this:

1. Press Shift-Alt-A to "Add an existing file" to the project.
2. Select the "hello.cpp" file from the Chap01 folder of the Exercise Files and press the "Add" button.
3. Confirm that "hello.cpp" is listed under Source Files, then right-click on the "Working" project name and select "Properties".
4. Now you should be able to select the C/C++ section and proceed with the installation video instructions.
