Support for building with up to Preview 4 is in the develop branch [1].
Preview 5 massively changed the directory structure and removed the VS
install location from the registry and from global environment variables.
According to comments on the MSDN blogs, it is likely that the VC toolset
directory will change again and that MS will provide a reliable way to find
the VS install location by RC [2].
