Nobody is saying that. We discussed the situation, first having installed
VS2015 (with over time (after updates) a number of different SDK's) and
consequently installing VS2017, without uninstalling VS2015. This config
appears to have some issues. From the mouth of STL (as per
and some posts here): "VS2015 is no longer recommended under any
circumstance." The "bunch of compilers" should be limited to 10.0.16299.0
(or VC-15.5.5), iff you are using anything newer than VS2013.
