Beginning builder here, just wanted to ask, I successfully built Blender with VS2019 and vc15 (r62363).
Blender 2.83 Alpha vc16 is what comes out.
Then I got a 2.79 branch:
git checkout blender2.7
Then I built 2.79 in it’s own directory:
make release 2019 builddir 2.79c
It will ask if I want to download the libraries. I say yes. It downloads win64_vc14 (r62363)
Then it compiles for a good 30 minutes with several yellow warnings but it continues and it hits this instruction and halts:
bf_intern_cycles.vcxproj -> C:\Users\Admin\BlenderMarket\BlenderCypress\source\vs2019\2.79c\lib\Release\bf_intern_cycles.lib
cycles_kernel.vcxproj -> C:\Users\Admin\BlenderMarket\BlenderCypress\source\vs2019\2.79c\lib\Release\cycles_kernel.lib
Error during build, see “c:\Users\Admin\BlenderMarket\BlenderCypress\source\vs2019\blender…\2.79c”\Build.log for details
So just wondering where I can go next?
