I made an attempt to get ROS today, but the installation information calls for visual studio 2017 but Microsoft has discontinued it, I pushed through to the end but it doesn't appear to work. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Are you trying to use the ROSonWindows port that Microsoft has made available? If so: please add the ROSonWindows tag to your question.

Yes. I just installed Noetic on Windows 10 with Visual Studio 2019. Most tools works like a charm.

  1. The turtlesim works.
  2. I can compile simple projects with catkin_make.
  3. I can debug simple projects with VS2019.
  4. Windows Terminal works great. (There is a small error in document for setting it up)
  5. rviz is working great.

But not everything works:

  1. Tab completion is missing
  2. Buttons in rqt_bag are all blank(without icons).
  3. Some rqt tools will crash.
  4. I can't compile cartographer_ros.
