Windows 10 msvc_build.bat with debug parameter fails
at the command prompt:
It's failing because it is expecting a VS2010 toolset. I have tried various things inside VS2017 (there is no "Retarget Solution" option), and I have examined the batch file itself: no success. I don't want to install the VS2010 build tools. Is this a problem with the makefiles? I am going to revert to the RelWithDebugInfo configuration for now, but I would really like to build a full debug build. RelWithDebugInfo prevents me from putting breakpoints on some lines, among other optimizations that leave me half blind. It also might be the cause of some other irregular behavior on the part of the VS2017 debugger, at least that's my hope.
The complete error message (which occurs for every sub-project):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\VC\VCTargetsMicrosoft.Cpp.Platform.targets(65,5): error MSB8020:
The build tools for Visual Studio 2010 (Platform Toolset = 'v100') cannot be found. To build using the v100 build tools, please install Visual Studio 2010 build tools.
Alternatively, you may upgrade to the current Visual Studio tools by selecting the Project menu or right-click the solution, and then selecting "Retarget solution".
