I am trying to compile Electron on Windows 7 but I am having problems. (On my Mac it was a breeze… sigh…)
I am following these steps:
The link to MS Visual Studio 2013 takes us to MS Visual Studio 2015. So I am using 2015.
python script\bootstrap.py -v I get the following error:
Could not locate Visual Studio installation
This error is being thrown from
electron\vendor\brightray\vendor\gyp\pylib\gyp\MSVSVersion.py, and it seems this is called originally from
I’m running this from the “Developer Command Prompt” that comes w/ MSVS 2015. Python version is 2.7.9.
Has anybody seen this? I have installed multiple versions of MSVS over the years. I looked at the MSVSVersion.py script and I don’t understand why it wouldn’t find a single one of my installations?
Is MS Visual Studio 2015 confirmed to “work” as a replacement for 2013?
To those of you who compile Electron on Windows regularly: what’s your setup? What version of Windows and MSVS do you use?
