+
+<p>
+Include paths and preprocessor macros for C/C++ indexer and other <strong>Language Settings</strong> are supplied by <strong>Language Settings Providers</strong> as part of <a href="../concepts/cdt_c_scanner_discovery.htm">Scanner Discovery</a>.
+Language Settings Providers can be set up and configured for the selected configuration in the "Providers" tab.
+</p>
+<p>
+"Providers" tab is only shown in properties of a project, not in properties of a file or a folder.

+A user can define some options for configuration providers (or "non-shared") on this property page. Note that providers can be either shared or defined per configuration.
+Options of global (or "shared") providers can be configured on <a href="../reference/cdt_u_pref_build_scanner_discovery.htm">C/C++ Preferences: Scanner Discovery</a>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+There are 2 specific options that are added for non-shared providers defined per configuration. They are described in the table below.
