VS Code doesn't come with a compiler

I ask for this: https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/languages/cpp

"(...)
Note: If you just want a lightweight tool to edit your C++ files, Visual Studio Code is a great choice. But if you want the best possible experience for editing, testing and debugging your existing Visual C++ projects or debugging on Windows, we recommend Visual Studio IDE.
(...)"

For StockFish (C++ I think) seems better VS Community ?
For LcO (C++, Python, Go ...) i have no idea :)

if you want to compile sf you need vs community (it's free), vs code is just an editor
I don't know if sf will compile easily with the microsoft compiler though, you might need gcc
