[Bf-committers] Migrating Blender builds to Visual Studio 2010

Hi Thomas and Gaia,

I tried the VS 2012 way before stepping down to 2010.

Nvcc can be forced to work with VC 2012, but I don't consider this safe.
VC 2012 express supports a good load of features previously only available in pro versions.
Even OpenMP is in express now. But the compiler has several flaws. It crashes very often with normal optimization levels (O2 /Ob2).

So I found porting to VC 2010 until MS brings patches for the compiler and nvidia brings VC 2012 support would make it a bit easier to take the step from 2010 to 2012 instead of 2008->2012

I would volunteer to take over support for the 2010 build system and do the porting to vs 2012 when applicable.

Best regards
