I'm setting up a new Jenkins server to do Bhyve builds and run on platforms that aren't currently tested with the GitHub/Azure system.
Since VS2012 appears to be a supported toolchain, I tried building OvmfPkgX64 with it (I'm also planning on testing VS2013, VS2015, VS2017 and VS2019), but it fails with:
Building ... c:\users\administrator\src\edk2\NetworkPkg\Library\DxeUdpIoLib\DxeUdpIoLib.inf [X64]
c:\users\administrator\src\edk2\UefiCpuPkg\Library\MpInitLib\MpLib.c(1268) : error C2220: warning treated as error - no 'object' file generated
c:\users\administrator\src\edk2\UefiCpuPkg\Library\MpInitLib\MpLib.c(1268) : warning C4306: 'type cast' : conversion from 'int' to 'SEV_ES_AP_JMP_FAR *' of greater size
I know the GitHub/Azure system only tests with VS2017 and VS2019: are there plans to drop the older VS versions, or should they still work?
And would it be considered useful to _check_ that they still work, or should they be considered unsupported?
