Hi, bro

I recommend that as this is the first time you compile LibreOffice on
windows, follow this tutorial: It's a bit more
automated and generally gives you less trouble if you think you've followed
all the steps correctly. About your problem with the current creative
method, how many versions of visual studio did you install on your machine?
Did you have to uninstall any? .... Did you have to reinstall the current
one at some point? Do the lines shown appear at the beginning of the build?
