Using VS Code for root

ROOT Version: 6.14.02
Platform: Windows 10

I have some difficulties trying to run a root macro from visual studio. Here is the sample code:

#include <iostream>
#include <TLorentzVector.h>

using namespace std;
int main() {
    cout << "Hello World!" << endl;
    TLorentzVector v1(1.0,2.0,3.0,40);
    for (int i =0; i<4;i++){
    cout << v1[i] << " ";
    return 0;

This is the output.

[Running] cd "c:\Users\Debajyoti Sengupta\Desktop\Codes\C++ practice\vs\practice\practice\" && g++ main.cpp -o main && "c:\Users\Debajyoti Sengupta\Desktop\Codes\C++ practice\vs\practice\practice\"main
main.cpp:2:28: fatal error: TLorentzVector.h: No such file or directory
 #include <TLorentzVector.h>
compilation terminated.

This is my include settings

    "configurations": [
            "name": "Win32",
            "includePath": [
            "defines": [
            "windowsSdkVersion": "10.0.17134.0",
            "compilerPath": "C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio/2017/Enterprise/VC/Tools/MSVC/14.15.26726/bin/Hostx64/x64/cl.exe",
            "cStandard": "c11",
            "cppStandard": "c++11",
            "intelliSenseMode": "msvc-x64"
    "version": 4

Anybody know what the issue is here?
Also could you recommend editors for writing root macros?
