I can’t install the bleak module on windows 10

  c++, python, visual-studio, visual-studio-2017

I get the following error while trying to install bleak using: pip instal bleak (I use spyder via anaconda and I have already tried to solve the problem by downloading visual studio 2022 but that didn’t work):

I use this to be able to read the live data from the Polar H10 HR Sensor for analytical apllications. So what else can I do?
