Where is vcvarsall.bat file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 7 64

    Visual Studio 2015 community

    I thought this file would be in C:\program files(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\  but it's not. Should it be? If not, what's the alternative and how do I run the compiler from the command line? Am I missing something?

    Ps. I am a complete novice.

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    The vcvarsall.bat file is in C:\program files(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\.

    I doubt that you didn't install visual C++ tools, in visual studio 2015, visual C++ tools is not installed by default, please go to Control Panel -> Uninstall a program, select visual studio 2015, right click, Change -> Modify, to see if the Visual C++ tools is selected, if it isn't selected, it means that you didn't install the visual C++ tool, please select it and then follow the installation steps to install it.

  • It may be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Shared\14.0\VC

  • That is weird, why the bat file would end up in Shared/14.0/VC but not C:\program files(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\?

  • In VS 2017 Preview, at least, it seems to appear in

        C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Preview\Professional\VC\Auxiliary\Build

    This breaks building Python out-of-the-box.

  • in the full release (of Professional at least) its now at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Auxiliary\Build
