So I was able to install ROS onto my local machine, and visual studio and all those. However now I am running into an issue with catkin_make, I have already made the directory my_catkin_ws. Here is the error:
Base path: C:\my_catkin_ws

Creating symlink “C:\my_catkin_ws\src\CMakeLists.txt” pointing to “c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\share\catkin\cmake\toplevel.cmake”

CMake Error: CMake was unable to find a build program corresponding to “Ninja”. CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set. You probably need to select a different build tool.
CMake Error: CMAKE_C_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage

Invoking “cmake” failed
I know it has something to do with this ninja package, but how do I install ninja into the ROS environment? I’m using windows 10 and Visual Studio 2019 community edition if that information helps in any way.
Thanks for any assistance
