I'm trying to build LO on Windows 10 Machine with Visual Studio 2015, while running i'm getting error message 'Cannot find Visual Studio Installation' and it exits.

Can anyone please help me to get around this problem.

Same with me. Add --with-visual-studio=2015 to the configuration script. Though I was unable to compile with VS2015 Community Edition on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I followed the instructions populated on LO Wiki site but the make process always failed at a certain point. It was looking for Platform toolset v120 though v140 was installed. I could not fix it.

I uninstalled VS2015 and installed VS2013. It is still running for a while (I doing it in a VM) but it seems promising.

I hope it helped.
