I am trying to install Update 4 with VS 2017. In short, I am facing the "rc.exe not found" error that was also present with VS 2015 but the instructions found on this forum don't seem to apply as I don't see any option to include "Common tools", and I did select "Desktop development with C++" when installing VS 2017.
This is a clean install of Windows 10 (1703), so no previous VS or PSXE versions are present.
When installing VS 2017 (Professional), I have selected only the "Desktop development with C++" Workload.
When installing PSXE 2017 Update 4, I received 3 warnings:
- System reboot may be required for extended GPU analysis
- Additional requirements for using Intel C++ compiler to offload application computation to Intel Graphics Technology
- Missing Visual Studio C++ 2012, with a link to the Redistributables
I downloaded the redistributables from the link provided in the setup (it is Visual Studio C++ 2012 redistributable update 4), downloaded and installed the x86 and x64 redistributables, re-launched the PSXE setup. The 3rd warning was gone, the first two warnings were still there but I assumed there were not important.
I then installed PSXE 2017 Update 4 (Professional) leaving all options to default.
During the setup, 2 "Program Compatibility Assistant" messages come up. Both say that Windows blocked the installation of a digitally unsigned driver. One message is about "vtss.sys" and the other one is about "Sampling Enabling Product". But the installer says it completes successfully.
If I create a new console application with the wizard, trying to build it results in an "rc.exe not found" error. Other examples fail as well.
Would anyone have any pointers?
