We recently upgraded from vs 2008 to VS 2012.
We are using a Build Systeme running on our Server thus i need a Build Enviroment on the Server.
until now this was no Problem i just installed the Windows SDK 6.x
and then in the build system (Jenkis) compiled it using "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcpackages\vcbuild.exe" /upgrade /rebuild D:\Jenkins\dirxxx\workspace\subdir1\lib\someprojectfile.sln "Release|Win32"
Now i need a Build System for VS 2012 (x86 and x64). How the heck can i do this if the compilers aren't in the SDK anymore.
And mIcroSoft does not seems to provide a real solution ?
Any Hints ?
Installing the Express editions won't work due to missing headers and x64 support rigth, so what can i do ?

With the Windows SDK for Windows 8 a Visual Studio Pro License is needed if x64 is needed or other libs / features that are not part of the express edition.
Note: Posted code pieces may not have a good programming style and may not perfect. It is also possible that they do not work in all situations. Code pieces are only indended to explain something particualar.
Which "missing headers"?
VS 2012 Express for Desktop is probably what you are after if you don't want to purchase the Pro+ editions.
