I'm successfully building with Visual Studio Version 2015 Community 
Edition RC.  It's a good job that modern drives have so much space as it 
takes up *EIGHT GIG* of space, so the download and install takes quite a 
time.  I'm aware that Steve Dower is trying to get a much smaller 
install made available for those who just want to build from the command 
line.
