This is regarding issues with locating VS 2017 toolset(s).
>From CMake ml, I learned about vswhere utility being developed by Microsoft

vswhere.exe (390 KB) is downloadable from

I'm not sure how exactly, but perhaps it would solve some of the
Boost.Build's headache (eg. particular PowerShell version required).

For example, it can

vswhere.exe -legacy

find a particular version:

vswhere -legacy -version [11.0,12.0)
