Will some one please give me an answer!!!???
Visual Studio Community 2015
to get VSC 2015 go here and make a free account, then you can download older versions.
It won't install c++ by default install, you must select custom install options (I think. I missed this step). I had same cl.exe not found error and went to
add/remove programsand chose
Modifyto install c++ after the fact. I don't remember the exact steps, but I didn't need to reinstall.
the problem may be the installing and uninstalling of many VS versions like the last post at the link I gave you is saying. I recommend that you go to that link and follow instructions if you cannot get dean's instructions working.
@dean i tried to download visual studio 2015 but it keep telling me we do not have the download for you. Is this temporary do i have to wait a little bit more.
did you join the free Dev Essentials program https://www.visualstudio.com/dev-essentials/ and activate the account through email. I had no problem downloading once I made the account and activated it.

@dean should i download visual studio 2015 with update 3 or vs 2015 update 3
@dean should i choose default or custom
With update 3. Use custom and check box to include c++ if it's there.
EDIT: If you have a choice for c++ win32, choose that one.
@dean i saw visual c++ but i didn't see c++ win32

I think that should do it. Like I said, I missed that step.
In case you, or anyone else didn't install C++ while installing Visual Studio, like me, you can install it after the fact.
This link is where I found how to install C++ after the fact. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/31953769/visual-studio-doesnt-have-cl-exe
I used this method from the comments of the chosen answer on that thread.
"if Visual Studio is already installed, choose File | New | Project | C++ and you will be prompted to install the necessary components." – jodis
But you can also do this I reckon.
You don't need to re-download the installer for Visual Studio: just go to Add or remove programs -> Visual studio community 2015 -> modify. From there, I clicked languages, Visual C++. Added cl.exe! – user2831602
