VS2015 minimal installation

Visual Studio 2015 Build Tools

Lightweight C++ Installation in Visual Studio “15”

Building Visual Studio projects on the command-line

Generate a CMake project, targeting Visual Studio 2015:

cd C:\Users\Public\Documents
mkdir build
cd build
cmake --config Release -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" `
      -D CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=M:\dependencies\ `
      N:\Documents\GitHub\Altus_Standalone
# Build using 4 CPUs
cmake --build . --config Release -- /m:4

For building a project generated by CMake, and using Visual Studio 2015:

& "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\14.0\Bin\MSBuild.exe" .\altus.sln /p:Configuration=Release /maxcpucount

See what DLL dependencies an EXE depends upon

# Open Visual Studio Native Tools command prompt
dumpbin.exe /dependents whatever.exe

Offline installation

See: https://www.techtronic.us/blog/post/technology/visual-studio-2012-update-2-offline-installer/

tl;dr: Run offline installer with "/Layout". For MSVC15 (Visual Studio 2016), it was changed to --layout, which must be given an absolute path.

Version Naming

Visual Studio 2012 is "11"; Visual Studio 2013 is "12; Visual Studio 2015 is "14; Visual Studio 2017 is "15".

Boost uses msvc-11.0, msvc-14.0, etc.

Etc
