Hello. In Visual Studio 2019, windows 10:
*Downloaded this :
https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/archive/refs/heads/master.zip

*unzipped and opened this  ...\povray-master\windows\vs2015\povray.sln with
option to auto update project toolset to v142

*Choosing "Debug" ; and "x64" in the top bar solution config rolldowns.

*changing     #define BUILT_BY "YOUR NAME (YOUR EMAIL)" line 128
and removing  #error line 129 right below it of
.....\povray-master\source\base\build.h

*picking GUI in Windows tagrets and top menu Generate > Generate Solution

* Waited a while and properly got pvengine64d.exe inside
.....\povray-master\windows\vs2015\bin64
Output message (originally in french)ended by :
========== Cleanup : 21 succeeded, 0 failed, 2 were ignored ==========

* Done a Generate > Cleanup solution and picked Release option before trying
that right now!  My computer is an I7 Q720, so should I try Release-AVX or
Release-SSE2 after that ?
