Is there any actual reason why you can't use the prebuilt MSVC
binaries for MSVC 2017? I have had far more issues with MinGW than
with MSVC in the past, and MSVC 2017 (version 15.9) is IMHO the far
superior compiler, compared to MinGW: Build speed, application
performance and system library support are much better in my case, not
to forget the "native" pdb debug files which are needed for a few
other debugging tools which you don't want to miss (ETW, profilers,
post-mortem debugging, ...).
IANAL, but the express version
https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/de/vs/express/ which still exists
for VS2017 should be OK even for commercial use cases?
