    It means you can't compile new code and run it. That kind of defies the purpose of the compiler, so something is still wrong and you have not found a solution to it.

    I registered just to try and help you, because I had the exact same problem! I hope I am not too late :P

    In VS, go to

    tools>options>projects and solutions>VC++ Directories

    click the little folder button (new line) then in the new line that appears put:
    C:\Windows\System32\

    I had the exact same problem as you, but I just did that and now it works.
