I'm trying to remote build a C++ helloworld in VisualStudio2017 on WSL Ubuntu. I followed the instructions as outlined by Goodner on MSDN here:
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vcblog/2016/03/30/visual-c-for-linux-development/ https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vcblog/2017/04/11/linux-development-with-c-in-visual-studio/ https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vcblog/2018/11/26/using-visual-studio-for-cross-platform-c-development-targeting-windows-and-linux/
And for WSL this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-on-server
Problem: Intellisense can't find the include headers and I cannot debug my program. The build on the Linux however is successful and can be run from the bash.
I figured the Remote Headers IntelliSense Manager should have been able to resolve the issue, but it's not downloading the headers to my Windows header cache
Any help on how to correctly set up VS2017 remote build/debug on WSL to build C, C++ and existing Make projects is highly appreciated.
