We’re using Visual Studio 2012 and some of us use Visual Studio 2013. The visualCpp tool chain for these can be found in “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0” & “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0” including the 64 bit and 32 bit variations.
On my system with Visual Studio 2012 installed gradle outputs:
> Tool chain visualCpp is not available: Visual Studio installation cannot be located. Searched in [C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0, C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0].
It looks like this is hard coded in org.gradle.nativebinaries.toolchain.internal.msvcpp.DefaultVisualStudioLocator.
Ideally it would be nice to be able to modify the list of candidates for both VisualStudio and WindowsSdks.
Are there plans for making the default search path configurable or for supporting the latest VisualStudio and WindowSdk search paths?
