Sorry if this looks more like a support request.  There's probably something wrong in my setup (I do have Visual Studio 2015 installed, though).

I am trying to build on Windows using "Tools\buildbot\build.bat -p x64".  It worked a few months ago.  Now I get:


       "c:\t\cpython\PCbuild\pcbuild.proj" (Build target) (1) ->
       "c:\t\cpython\PCbuild\pythoncore.vcxproj" (Build target) (2) ->
       (Desktop_PlatformPrepareForBuild target) ->
