C/C++ for Visual Studio Code

C/C++ support for Visual Studio Code is provided by a Microsoft C/C++ extension to enable cross-platform C and C++ development on Windows, Linux, and macOS.

cpp extension

Install the extension

  1. Open VS Code.
  2. Select the Extensions view icon on the Activity bar or use the keyboard shortcut ( ⇧⌘X (Windows, Linux Ctrl+Shift+X ) ).
  3. Search for ‘C++’ .
  4. Select Install.

Search for c++ in the Extensions view

After you install the extension, when you open or create a *.cpp file, you will have syntax highlighting (colorization), smart completions and hovers (IntelliSense), and error checking.

C++ language features

Install a compiler

C++ is a compiled language meaning your program’s source code must be translated (compiled) before it can be run on your computer. VS Code is first and foremost an editor, and relies on command-line tools to do much of the development workflow. The C/C++ extension does not include a C++ compiler or debugger. You will need to install these tools or use those already installed on your computer.

There may already be a C++ compiler and debugger provided by your academic or work development environment. Check with your instructors or colleagues for guidance on installing the recommended C++ toolset (compiler, debugger, project system, linter).

Some platforms, such as Linux or macOS, have a C++ compiler already installed. Most Linux distributions have the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) installed and macOS users can get the Clang tools with Xcode.

Check if you have a compiler installed

Make sure your compiler executable is in your platform path ( %PATH on Windows, $PATH on Linux and macOS) so that the C/C++ extension can find it. You can check availability of your C++ tools by opening the Integrated Terminal ( ⌃` (Windows, Linux Ctrl+` ) ) in VS Code and trying to directly run the compiler.

Checking for the GCC compiler g++ :

Checking for the Clang compiler clang :

Note: If you would prefer a full Integrated Development Environment (IDE), with built-in compilation, debugging, and project templates (File > New Project), there are many options available, such as the Visual Studio Community edition.

If you don’t have a compiler installed, in the example below, we describe how to install the Minimalist GNU for Windows (MinGW) C++ tools (compiler and debugger). MinGW is a popular, free toolset for Windows. If you are running VS Code on another platform, you can read the C++ tutorials, which cover C++ configurations for Linux and macOS.

Example: Install MinGW-x64

We will install Mingw-w64 via MSYS2, which provides up-to-date native builds of GCC, Mingw-w64, and other helpful C++ tools and libraries. You can download the latest installer from the MSYS2 page or use this link to the installer.

Follow the Installation instructions on the MSYS2 website to install Mingw-w64. Take care to run each required Start menu and pacman command.

You will need to install the full Mingw-w64 toolchain ( pacman -S —needed base-devel mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain ) to get the gdb debugger.

Add the MinGW compiler to your path

Add the path to your Mingw-w64 bin folder to the Windows PATH environment variable by using the following steps:

  1. In the Windows search bar, type ‘settings’ to open your Windows Settings.
  2. Search for Edit environment variables for your account.
  3. Choose the Path variable in your User variables and then select Edit.
  4. Select New and add the Mingw-w64 destination folder path, with \mingw64\bin appended, to the system path. The exact path depends on which version of Mingw-w64 you have installed and where you installed it. If you used the settings above to install Mingw-w64, then add this to the path: C:\msys64\mingw64\bin .
  5. Select OK to save the updated PATH. You will need to reopen any console windows for the new PATH location to be available.

Check your MinGW installation

To check that your Mingw-w64 tools are correctly installed and available, open a new Command Prompt and type:

If you don’t see the expected output or g++ or gdb is not a recognized command, make sure your PATH entry matches the Mingw-w64 binary location where the compiler tools are located.

If the compilers do not exist at that PATH entry, make sure you followed the instructions on the MSYS2 website to install Mingw-w64.

Hello World

To make sure the compiler is installed and configured correctly, we’ll create the simplest Hello World C++ program.

Create a folder called "HelloWorld" and open VS Code in that folder ( code . opens VS Code in the current folder):

The "code ." command opens VS Code in the current working folder, which becomes your "workspace". Accept the Workspace Trust dialog by selecting Yes, I trust the authors since this is a folder you created.

Now create a new file called helloworld.cpp with the New File button in the File Explorer or File > New File command.

File Explorer New File button

helloworld.cpp file

Add Hello World source code

Now paste in this source code:

Now press ⌘S (Windows, Linux Ctrl+S ) to save the file. You can also enable Auto Save to automatically save your file changes, by checking Auto Save in the main File menu.

Build Hello World

Now that we have a simple C++ program, let’s build it. Select the Terminal > Run Build Task command ( ⇧⌘B (Windows, Linux Ctrl+Shift+B ) ) from the main menu.

Run Build Task menu option

This will display a dropdown with various compiler task options. If you are using a GCC toolset like MinGW, you would choose C/C++: g++.exe build active file.

Select g++.exe task

This will compile helloworld.cpp and create an executable file called helloworld.exe , which will appear in the File Explorer.

helloworld.exe in the File Explorer

Run Hello World

From a command prompt or a new VS Code Integrated Terminal, you can now run your program by typing ".\helloworld".

Run hello world in the VS Code Integrated Terminal

If everything is set up correctly, you should see the output "Hello World".

This has been a very simple example to help you get started with C++ development in VS Code. The next step is to try one of the tutorials listed below on your platform (Windows, Linux, or macOS) with your preferred toolset (GCC, Clang, Microsoft C++) and learn more about the Microsoft C/C++ extension’s language features such as IntelliSense, code navigation, build configuration, and debugging.


Get started with C++ and VS Code with tutorials for your environment:


You can find more documentation on using the Microsoft C/C++ extension under the C++ section of the VS Code website, where you’ll find topics on:

C++ TOC on code.visualstudio.com

Remote Development

VS Code and the C++ extension support Remote Development allowing you to work over SSH on a remote machine or VM, inside a Docker container, or in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

To install support for Remote Development:

  1. Install the VS Code Remote Development Extension Pack.
  2. If the remote source files are hosted in WSL, use the WSL extension.
  3. If you are connecting to a remote machine with SSH, use the Remote — SSH extension.
  4. If the remote source files are hosted in a container (for example, Docker), use the Dev Containers extension.

Enhance completions with AI

How to run C++ Code in Visual Studio Code

I am writing this article because I had faced several issues while running the C++ code in VS Code. As usual, everyone was using the CodeBlocks IDE and DevC++ and many more. But I was already used to Visual Studio Code for all my programming stuff. In this article, I’ll show you how to set up your compiler in VsCode. I will be using a Windows OS throughout this article.

So let’s Start..


  1. Prior knowledge of Programming.
  2. Visual Studio Code Editor ( Download from here)
  3. Good Internet Connection !!

Download and install a C++ compiler:

Head to www.mingw.org and click the “Download/Installer” link to download the MinGW setup file, or click here for Windows, here for Linux, and here for Mac.

After downloading, install MinGW and wait for the “MinGW Installation Manager” to show up.

When the “MinGW Installation Manager” shows up, click on mingw32-gcc-g++ then select “Mark for Installation”.

In the menu at the top left corner, click on “Installation > Apply Changes

Wait and allow to install completely. Ensure you have a stable internet connection during this process.

Edit your PATH environment variable to include the directory where the C++ compiler is located :

After installing MinGW, it can be found in C:\MinGW\bin . Now you have to include this directory in your environment variable PATH. If you've been using computers for a while now you should know how to do this already, but if you don't, here are a few resources:

  • Click here for a Windows OS guide
  • Click here for Linux
  • Click here for a Mac OS guide

Install Code Runner extension in VS Code :

Now we are done with our compiler set up, let’s install Code Runner

Code Runner allows you to Run code snippet or code file for multiple languages: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl, Perl 6, Ruby, Go, Lua, Groovy, PowerShell, BAT/CMD, BASH/SH, F# Script, F# (.NET Core), C# Script, C# (.NET Core), VBScript, TypeScript, CoffeeScript, Scala, Swift, Julia, Crystal, OCaml Script, R, AppleScript etc.

Search in VsCode marketplace tab:

After installing restart VsCode. Open your C++ file in VsCode.

Here’s a basic hello world program below:

Run your code using Code Runner:

1.Use the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+N

2. Press F1 and then select/type Run Code

3. Right-click the Text Editor and then click Run Code in the editor context menu.

The code will run and the output will be shown in the Output Window. Open the output window with `Ctrl+ shortcut.


By default, VsCode’s output terminal is read-only. It means that You can’t use terminal to take input by default. To fix this, you need to manually enable read-write. Steps as follow:

Как запустить проект на C# в Visual studio code?

Вкратце, я ещё не опытный и я не знаю как запустить свой код в Visual studio code.

Да, я знаю, что эта программа предназначена для опытных, но мне она очень понравилась своим оформлением) К сожалению, я только изучаю программирование, т.е. базовую часть. И хотелось бы понять, как компилировать свой код и запускать.

  1. Устанавливаешь .net 6 SDK
  2. Устанавливаешь все нужные плагины:

PS: Вообще, советую пользоваться полноценной студией — может она на первый взгляд и пугает, но она сильно удобнее, чем vs code. (ну и в ней всё работает из коробки, что важно для новичков)
PPS: А ещё существует Rider — для профессионального разработчика он стоит копеечные 15$ в месяц, а для школьника или студента вообще бесплатен. При этом он даёт целую кучу полезных инструментов, особенно для геймдева, если он вам интересен.

How to Run C# in VSCode (and Compile, Debug, and Create a Project)

As stated above, I make it a point to use VSCode for as many things as I can get away with.

I feel comfortable in VSCode, know the shortcuts, and just don’t like jumping editors.

I started out with C# in Visual Studio because I was told to. It’s easy, has many, many features, and is what the tutorials told me to use.

Later, I made it a point to become efficient in it with VSCode. I was using it for everything else. Why not with C#? Visual Studio, to me, is just too bulky and has too much going on.

So in this post, I want to help you do the same.

Whether you are just starting out in C# or have decided to switch from Visual Studio to VSCode, I’m going to share with you how to run, debug, execute, and compile your C# code in VSCode.

Watch the Video?

Before we get started, if you prefer video format, check out the tutorial on YouTube.

Otherwise, continue reading.

How to Run C# in VSCode

1. Install .NET 5.0

First, install .NET 5.0. You can do that here:

Then confirm that dotnet is installed by checking the version in a terminal window:

Also go ahead and install this C# VSCode extension.

2. Create a new C# project in VSCode

Next, create a new project and open it in VSCode:

Now you should see a simple Hello World app with the main code in Program.cs

3. Run Your C# Code in VSCode

To execute your code, simply run:

…and you should see Hello World displayed in the console.

4. Debug Your C# Code in VSCode

First, be sure you installed the official C# extension mentioned above. If not, it can be found here.

Next, in VSCode open the Command Palette by going to View > Command Palette (or use the shortcut if you know what it is), and search for .NET: Generate Assets for Build and Debug

Choosing this will generate a .vscode folder with a prepopulated build configuration in it.

Now go to the “Run and Debug” tab in VSCode, set your breakpoint(s), and click the Play button to debug.

5. Compile Your Code

To compile your code, run:

After that is done you will have an executable (exe or dll) in your /bin folder. Depending on your build configuration it may be in a Debug folder or a Release folder.


And that’s how you run C# code in VSCode.

Now build our your code, debug it as needed, run dotnet run to execute your code, and dotnet build to compile it.
