Request for help - building Cura on Windows 10 with VS 2017 + VC 2014

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build Cura on a Windows 10 VM and have installed the community edition of Visual Studio 2017 along with the 2014 build tools.

 

The build is failing when trying to build python with messages like these:

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\v140\Microsoft.Cpp.Current.targets(64,5): error MSB4062: The "SetEnv"
 task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\v140\Microsoft.Build.CppT
asks.Common.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Core, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, Pu
blicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the
<UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contain
s a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask. [C:\Users\burto\cura\cura-build-environment\build\Pyt
hon-prefix\src\Python\PCbuild\pythoncore.vcxproj]

I don't normally use Windows so this is all foreign for me.

Has anyone any suggestions as to what is required to fix this?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
