Just to set the record straight:

'on' is the default value meaning replacements scripts will be created
if they do not exist, and used directly if they do. So the above is the
same as using msvc : 12.0 ;

'<rewrite-setup-scripts>off' will restore the old behavior - call
vcvarsall.bat instead.

'<rewrite-setup-scripts>always' will re-create replacement scripts on
every b2 invocation.

If this new behavior is the culprit, then most likely replacement
scripts exist, but are invalid for some reason (empty?). See if there is
something wrong with them - they reside in TEMP dir, and have 'b2_*.cmd'
name pattern, for example:
