Ability to set PlatformToolset dropdown vor VisualStudio


I encounter problems when i try to compile everything under VS2010 for the x64 arch:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Platforms\x64\Microsoft.Cpp.x64.Targets(507,5): error MSB8008: Specified platform toolset (Windows7.1SDK) is not installed or invalid. Please make sure that a supported PlatformToolset value is selected.

In fact, PlatformToolset is set to "Windows7.1SDK" only for x64 archs, but i would like to specify "v100" and be able to compile x64 projects with VisualStudio2010 even without installing the complete Windows7.1SDK. For example, in VS2012 you can specify v110 and be able to build for x64 too...

What about a dropdown ?


Ok.. I've changed that, let me know if it does the trick.


i think vs2010 should be "v100", vs2012 should be "v110" and vs2013 should be "v120"... don't think it works v110 in vs2010 (haven't tested but i might remember correctly).

or eventually Windows7.1SDK for all if you have it installed



Yes, that makes more sense - updated now.


great thanx, this should work !
