    Angry VSCode C IntelliSense - How can I set up IntelliSense properly?

    Hi.
    I've looked literally everywhere possible, but I couldn't find any reliable documentation of how to set up VS Code IntelliSense properly for programming in C.

    I've tried to set it to work with MinGW, with TDM-GCC, but IntelliSense still couldn't load basic libraries like stdio.h, stdlib.h or string.h - And those are pretty much essentials for a program to work with. It tries to load them from Visual Studio by default, but eventually fails. But even Visual Studio has them installed.

    What's going on? It really ........es me off...

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Yea. I did follow this guide, and failed to succeed. But I figured it out. The issue was with the path. For some reason, I entered a misleading path (non-existent), so whenever it tried to search from that path, it couldn't find any sources. Now it works.
