Summary0008426: runprebuild.bat included in the current dev master does not produce a compile.bat file that works. An older one works just fine.

The runprebuild.bat from an older dev master from about 10 days ago works just fine. A copy of the older one that works with no problem is attached for reference.
Steps To Reproduce1. Must be running windows and VS 2015
2. run the runprebuild.bat file
3. run the resulting compile.bat file and nothing happens

yes it still has a bug on vs2015 detection :(
but the old one uses a outdated version of msbuild
please use the ide, or proper path to vs2015 msbuild
I don't have vs2015 anymore, but we will fix it :)

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 is not enough anymore?
Microsoft Visual Studio 2015/2017 use more disk space.

Unfortunately VS 2017 will no longer install on many different versions of Windows including the version of Windows server that is running on my not so new rack servers. [^]

VS 2015 installs and works just fine on almost all versions of Windows.
So I am stuck using VS 2015.

Djphil it is not the framework, it is compile tools.
the ones included on the framework are no longer updated.
MS moved them from the framework to visual studio, reasoning is that you can now have 2 diferent versions of VS each using the correct tools, blablabla...
So we are supposed to have the compilers now.

there are options to install only tools, but those may not install or setup everything needed.

kenvc you can use the ide, or just have the trouble of findind the path to vs2015 msbuild. MS is also changing its location on each vs version.

 ProgramFiles (x86) \MSBuild\14.0\bin\msbuild.exe is a possibility

Same here, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, the correct path for me is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe

with Visual Studio 2015. Fails with that path, also fails with percent 20 for the two spaces, %28 and %29 for ( and ) and %5C for \'s in this format:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe OpenSim.sln

Also I can confirm the attached runprebuild.bat does fix the problem.
I am able to update to Visual Studio 2017 but others may not be able to do that.

Well I compiled Opensim without Visual Studio 2015/2017, just using an old compile.bat and it worked fine.
So you tell me that I have to use Visual Studio, just to create the compile.bat, a file with 1 line of text in it, hmmm hmmm :(
