Problems of the installation of PGI Community Edition 18.10

Dear all
On my Win10 (family edition) operating system, the Visual Studio 2017 with Visual C++ and the Windows 10 SDK have already been successfully installed according to the instrustions on the website (, but when I try to install PGI there is still the reminder “Visual Studio 2017 with Visual C++ (not found on your system)”.
Thanks in advance.

Hi seek knowledge,

Which drive is VS installed?

Unfortunately, we have a limitation where VS needs to be installed in the default drive. So if the default were the “C:” drive, and you have VS installed on “D:”, the installer wont be able to find it.
