Well, I do like a challenge. You haven't even told us what system you're
on, for example.

No no, don't say, I recognize Visual Studio when I see it.

Let's see... Magic 8-ball says that your paths are no good. Now it
depends on what Visual Studio you're using. Let's see.

Try Tools -> Options -> Directories. Now, I don't know what the
resulting dialog box looks like, but there should be paths for the
executable files. These should include the directory where cl.exe
resides (likely something along the lines of C:\Program Files\Microsoft
Visual Studio something something\Vc[0-9]\bin) and a lib directory much
the same; if they don't, add them.

If you're using Visual Studio.NET, I have no idea, as it seems to manage
these things automagically, and I haven't seen it fail yet.

If all else fails, you can always compile/make from the command line by
opening the "Command Prompt" in your VS start menu.

Followups to the newsgroup this most likely belongs in:
microsoft.public.vstudio.general.

Why would you expect anyone here to know?

We don't even know what system you're using, and we're not going to
guess. Try asking in a newsgroup that covers whatever system you're
using.

We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.

It means you broke something.

You don't mention anything at all about your OS, compiler, programme
or anything else that might help us. It also looks entirely like a
problem with your installation and hence not a C problem.

At a guess its Windows and MSVC. Try installing the application, and
then asking in a Windows programming group.
