After reading Bug #48 on github, I tried to build the 64 bit version 
from git (commit #4983507) on Windows 10 so that I could compare it with 
the official 3.7.0.0 release. Unfortunately, it refuses to build with 
Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition.

I followed the compile instructions in /windows/readme.html to the 
letter. In the same directory as readme.html, the file readme.txt states,

> The Visual Studio 2010 projects should also build fine in Visual Studio 2015
> after automatic conversion, as has been tested with the Visual Studio 2015
> Community edition.

That is NOT the case. While the conversion process did complete 
successfully, actually trying to build POV-Ray failed. There were MANY 
warnings, but the errors that stopped the build were as follows:

I'll have a look at it; for the time being, please test with commit
#a371c26.

  Ok. I will try that.

By the way, is it better to report bugs here or on Github?

Definitely GitHub, as it comes with some essential mechanisms for
tracking, categorizing, following up, etc.

Commit# a371c26 compiled without issue.

Thank you.
