Problem Description:
Microsoft Visual C++ toolchain does not exist under Project \ Properties \ C/C++ Build \ Tool Chain Editor

index.php/fa/28182/0/Hello

My setup:
Windows 7
Eclipse Neon.2 / Eclipse Neon.1 (Same problem on both)
Microsoft Visual Studio Pro 2013

From Eclipse help I understand that this should work automatically
http://help.eclipse.org/neon/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Fcdt_c_before_you_begin.htm

I also remember that in previous version, Microsoft Visual C++ used to appear on the list (even if not installed).

Does anyone run into the same problem and can help?

Thanks

I assume you used the "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers" package before. It doesn't include the "Visual C++" toolchain by default anymore. You have to install it as an optional feature. It's also not very maintained anymore.

Thanks, it does show me now the Visual C++ toolchain Smile

I tried to define the environment variables by running the "Visual Studio\VC\vcvarsall.bat" script using Developer Prompt for VS2013, which does defines the environment variables, but outside of the Prompt they still remain un-defined.
So I defined all of the environment variables manually (PATH, LIB, LIBPATH, INCLUDE) both on Windows and on Eclipse Project Properties \ C/C++ Build \ Environment
But still eclipse does not recognize the includes

If anyone happen to know a guide of how to set up eclipse with Visual C++ toolchain I would be grateful Smile

Thanks

See if this helps: http://codewriterstips.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/using-microsoft-c-compiler-with-eclipse.html

Visual Studio console sets up the environment for VS toolchain.
AFAIK, you won't be able to debug, only build and run.
