This short post showing you how to add Visual C++ into your Visual Studio 2015 previously installed without this C++ component.

You start a New Project, look for Visual C++ template then you will see Install Visual C++ 2015 Tools for Windows Desktop. Click on that.

It will then pop up a Install Missing Features dialog.

The Visual Studio Setup program will be launched.
