 +It is strongly recommended that you use Visual Studio 2015. If you choose a different version, make sure the installers are named ''​vc_redist.x86.exe''​ and ''​vc_redist.x64.exe''​. Once you've located the vcredist installer, if you're doing a 32-bit build, copy the x86 installer in the root of your build env. If a 64-bit build, copy the x64/AMD64 installer. 
 +===== Make the package ===== 
 +  * Create a ''​makerelease.bat''​ file containing the following:​ 
 +<​code>​REM Clean up after old builds. 
 +del /q /f *.exe 
 +rmdir /s /q dist32 
 +rmdir /s /q dist64 
 +REM XP Compatibility requires the v7.1A SDK 
 +set MSSDK_DIR="​c:​\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1A"​ 
 +REM this can be either release or debug. For development you want to use debug 
 +set BUILD_TYPE=release 
 +REM This determines if you build a 32bit or 64bit version of mixxx.  
 +REM 32bit = i386, 64bit = amd64 
 +set ARCHITECTURE=i386 
 +REM set this to the folder where you build the dependencies 
 +set WINLIB_PATH=D:​\mixxx-buildserver32 
 +set QT_VERSION=4.8.7 
 +echo "​Building %ARCHITECTURE% %BUILD_TYPE% for %PLATFORM%"​.
-In any case, once you've located the vcredist installer, ​if you're doing a 32-bit build, copy the x86 installer in the root of your build env (not the root of mixxx sources, but the root of the BUILD ENV). If a 64-bit build, copy the x64/AMD64 installer.+if "​%ARCHITECTURE%"​ == "​i386"​ ( 
 +  set TARGET_MACHINE=x86 
 +  set VCVARS_ARCH=x86 
 +) else  
 +  set TARGET_MACHINE=amd64 
 +  set VCVARS_ARCH=x86_amd64 
-The file should be named vcredist_x86.exe or vcredist_x64.exe.+call "​c:​\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" %VCVARS_ARCH%
 +rem /MP Use all CPU cores.
 +rem /FS force synchronous PDB writes (prevents PDB corruption with /MP)
 +rem /EHsc Do not handle SEH in try / except blocks.
 +rem /​Zc:​threadSafeInit- disable C++11 magic static support (Bug #1653368)
 +set CL=/MP /FS /EHsc /​Zc:​threadSafeInit-
 +set PATH=%BIN_DIR%;​%PATH% mixxx makerelease toolchain=msvs winlib=%WINLIB_PATH% build=%BUILD_TYPE% staticlibs=1 staticqt=1 verbose=0 machine=%TARGET_MACHINE% qtdir=%QTDIR% hss1394=1 mediafoundation=1 opus=1 localecompare=1 optimize=portable virtualize=0 test=1 qt_sqlite_plugin=0 mssdk_dir="​%MSSDK_DIR%"​ build_number_in_title_bar=0 bundle_pdbs=1
 +Note: If you want to build 64 bits package, use set ARCHITECTURE=amd64 and force32=0
 +  * Execute it
