For folks who want to use the latest MS C++ compiler, without installing the Visual C++ IDE itself:
Quote
Together with the availability of Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 RC, we’re also announcing a new way of acquiring the C++ tools:
as a standalone installer that only lays down the tools required to build C++ projects without installing the Visual Studio IDE.

Hopeful that /layout works with it too?

EDIT:
It works :icon14: 1.38 Gt
cl 19.0.23419.0
ml 14.0.23419.0
link 14.0.23419.0

Windows 10 needs only vcruntime140.dll and msvcp140.dll, because vcruntime140 import lot of api-ms-win-*.dll
Windows 7 needs vcruntime140.dll and msvcp140.dll and api-ms-win-crt-*.dll and ucrtbase.dll from vc_redist package.

It appears it is missing rc.exe  which I use extensively.

Win_XPSupport.msi is missing, so WinSDK 7.1A is needed too :icon13:
Or download this and play with 7-Zip ;)

EDIT:

rc.exe is in package Win81_SDK\Windows Software Development Kit for Windows Store Apps-x86_en-us
rc version 6.3.9600

OfflineCache\installers\Win10SDK_Hidden_10.0.10240\en\0\Installers\Windows SDK for Windows Store Apps Tools-x86_en-us
rc version 10.0.10240.16384

It looks like I spoke too soon?
I do all my compiling with batch files.
I uninstalled Visual Studio 2015 community first and then installed the build tools on a Win10 box.
On testing it couldn't find rc. It found cl and link no problem.
I have been running Win 10 on this machine for a while now with no issues until
the last Win 10 update.
Today I got an a full Win 10 update ( similar to initial conversion from 7 to 10)
I don't know if it updated the Build tools but it found rc (10.0.10011.16384) on first test.
