Hello all,

I am looking to get into Blender development. I am getting stuck in trying to build Blender for the first time. I am running a Windows 10 x64 rig. I have tried the diections on this page: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/D...lender/Windows

Where I am having issues is that the build keeps failing at the "make full" command. I have checked out both the 32 bit and 64 bit. I have rebooted several times, reinstalled visual studio but the build is still failing. I am getting the below error:


Visual Studio 2013 not found, trying Visual Studio 2015.
