Actually, you can also build from the command line under Windows:
using Tools/buildbot/build.bat or Tools/buildbot/build-amd64.bat
depending on the build you want (but perhaps it's good to teach people
to use the MSVC UI, since that's the reference IDE under Windows;
besides, these scripts will need MSVN installed anyway).
