Vs Code cpp not run

To troubleshoot why your C++ code is not running in Visual Studio Code (VS Code), you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the necessary extensions:
  2. Open VS Code and go to the Extensions view by clicking on the square icon on the left sidebar or by pressing Ctrl+Shift+X (Windows/Linux) or Cmd+Shift+X (Mac).
  3. Search for "C++" in the extensions search bar.
  4. Look for the official C++ extension by Microsoft and click on the "Install" button.

  5. Configure the C++ extension:

  6. Open the settings in VS Code by clicking on the gear icon on the left sidebar or by pressing Ctrl+, (Windows/Linux) or Cmd+, (Mac).
  7. In the settings search bar, type "C++".
  8. Look for the "C++: Default Configuration" setting and click on the "Edit in settings.json" link.
  9. In the "settings.json" file, add the necessary configuration for your C++ compiler and debugger. For example, if you are using GCC on Linux, you can add the following configuration: json "C_Cpp.default.compilerPath": "/usr/bin/g++", "C_Cpp.default.includePath": [ "${workspaceFolder}/" ], "C_Cpp.default.intelliSenseMode": "gcc-x64" Replace /usr/bin/g++ with the path to your C++ compiler executable if it is different.

  10. Create a C++ project or open an existing one:

  11. Open the folder that contains your C++ code in VS Code by going to File > Open Folder or by pressing Ctrl+K Ctrl+O (Windows/Linux) or Cmd+K Cmd+O (Mac).
  12. If you already have a C++ project, open the project's folder. Otherwise, create a new folder and add your C++ files to it.

  13. Build and run your C++ code:

  14. Open the C++ file you want to run in VS Code.
  15. Press Ctrl+Shift+B (Windows/Linux) or Cmd+Shift+B (Mac) to build your code. This will generate the executable file.
  16. To run the code, open the integrated terminal in VS Code by going to View > Terminal or by pressing Ctrl+ (backtick) (Windows/Linux/Mac).
  17. In the terminal, navigate to the folder where your code is located if necessary.
  18. Run the executable by typing its name and pressing Enter. For example, if your executable is named "myprogram", type ./myprogram and press Enter.

If you followed these steps and your C++ code still doesn't run, please provide more specific details about the issue you are facing, such as any error messages or unexpected behavior you are encountering.
