    stdio.h library missing

    I am having an issue only on my laptop, it seems that all of my libraries are missing from Visual Studio 2010 Premium.

    I only have 3 libraries in the following directory:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\include

    This is the directory that somebody else was told to look in, by an MVP, on MS technet website.

    So, I can see my programs, but of course I have lots of red underlines. VS2010 express was working fine on my laptop, but I was told that my school has an MSDN account, so I should upgrade to the premium version. And of course I now how this issue.

    Any advice on how to uninstall/reinstall [which I have now tried several times], or how I can add the libraries back into my system??

    Thanks for any help,

    I think you also need to install the platform SDK
    Microsoft Windows SDK - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The compiler (and other tools) can exist separately from all the header files and libraries necessary for writing programs on a particular machine.
    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.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but even after installing the Windows SDK it doesn't work.

    Any other idea of what I should do? I have moved over to working on my desktop, because it doesn't have any issues. But I have a test later tonight and I was hoping to be able to study at school.

    Thanks again for the help.
