I guess @bellenot can help you,
Note your screen dump is really hard to read …

Thank you and sorry for the bad screenshot. It basically says that I am missing the ‘new’ file thus ROOT is unable to run. Would it be possible that I can simply copy&paste one from other source?

You have to install Visual Studio 2019, and make sure you select the “ Desktop development with C++ ”, including the Windows 10 SDK (the latest one and the version 10.0.17134.0 for compatibility reasons)

Yes, that did the trick, thank you so much!!
