I am trying to produce a .vcxproj for VS2012 that supports both Win32 and x64 targets, and produces Windows XP compatible executables for the Win32 version. The only way this is possible is to mix both v110 and v110_xp platform toolsets in this .vcxproj.

I am looking to see if it's possible to expand the acceptable list of platform toolsets to include v110_xp.
MSDN link describing v110_xp

It seems like an action is bound to only provide one platform toolset for any code generation 'session', so I'm not sure the architecture of premake even would allow this as it is.

Any thoughts about this?

we just added this to our scripts.

which you can obviously make conditional on a setting... extend at will ;)


commented Jun 12, 2015

Toolsets are specified per configuration…wouldn't this work (untested)?

That is exactly what I tried, but 'v110_xp' is not a supported platform toolset out of the box. And it looks like each version of visual studio supports one toolset only. I can't extend it to a list. As far as I know?

Are you running against the latest sources? I've no trouble setting that value here.


commented Jun 13, 2015

I have the latest sources as of this past Wednesday.

I worked around the issue with Tom's fix above, and some other code.


commented Jun 13, 2015

Okay, I'll close this out, feel free to re-open with new information. Still think my example should work.


commented Jun 18, 2015

This is now working with the latest alpha release, FYI.

Downloading Visual Studio 2012


I'm trying to download Visual Studio 2012, but it doesn't seem to be available on the Microsoft website?

I kinda need this version because I'm trying to write a plug-in for Autodesk Maya (3D-animation software). I've tried 2017 but this doesn't seem to work, and the documentation tells me I need 2012. (http://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2016/ENU/?guid=__files_Setting_up_your_build_env_Windows_env_32bit_and_64bit_htm)

(error in 2017: error MSB8020: The build tools for Visual Studio 2012 (Platform Toolset = 'v110') cannot be found. To build using the v110 build tools, please install Visual Studio 2012 build tools. Alternatively, you may upgrade to the current Visual Studio tools by selecting the Project menu or right-click the solution, and then selecting 'Retarget solution'. )

Is there still anyway to get Visual Studio 2012? If i remember this used to be free to download, right? Or perhaps i can install Platform Toolset = 'v110'?

Thanks for the help
