error: aborting due to previous error
It says that Visual C ++ is needed. But how to install it? It isn't present in VS 2022 installer.
It was called something like "Build Tools" previously, doesn't the installer have something like this now? I'm on Linux, so can't check myself.
The option in the Visual Studio installer may be called "Windows 8/10/11 SDK for C++".
Here's a screenshot I have lying around that might help. The most essential parts are the optional components: "MSVC v143" and "Windows 10 SDK" (or "Windows 11 SDK" but it doesn't matter too much which version although generally newer is better)
