Building UXP with VS 2017

Unread post by gpower2 » 2018-02-10, 09:30

Are there any plans to make the new UXP buildable with VS 2017?
I was just reading the announcements for v15.6 which supposedly has a lot of changes in the C++ compiler in order to produce faster code and I thought it would be great if we could build UXP with this new compiler.

It benefit only for highend hardware and win10 then. For others i consider it will be slower.
Tell me at common how software monstrosity of 50gb size can produce good code?

Let's get it stabilized before we go redesigning aspects for the moving cpp spec target. So no, not at this time.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about, however even if what you're saying is true, the vast majority of users use or will use better PCs running Windows 7+, so...

Of course, it's not something to do at the moment, I was just asking if it is something being considered. ;)
