I am trying to write a batch script to update blender source code and compile it, and it is working fine with CMake only. But the issue comes up when I try to use Ninja to speedup the process, here is the command that fails :
cmake -GNinja -S D:/prog/blender_git/blender -B D:/prog/blender_git/branches/master_branch_ninja
And here is the error :
– The C compiler identification is MSVC 19.26.28806.0
– The CXX compiler identification is MSVC 19.26.28806.0
– Check for working C compiler: C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio/2019/Community/VC/Tools/MSVC/14.26.28801/bin/Hostx64/x64/cl.exe

It fails with the following output:

Do you have any idea where that could come from ?
After researching on the internet I found that it could come from the missing rc.exe in my path, but I tried to add it but still have the same issue.
Let me know if you have any clue
