MS Visual Studio 15.0 is not installed on this computer (although Visual Studio is installed)

Running BuildConsole command causes the following error:

--------------------Build System Error----------------------------------------- 
Failed to initialize Build System: 
Failed to load build set. 
MS Visual Studio 15.0 is not installed on this computer. 

Possible cause

1. In most cases, this problem related to VS2017 update 3 (15.3.X)
Up to version 9.0, IncrediBuild didn't support VS2017 update 3 and that's why this error occurs


  1. Upgrade your IncrediBuild version to V9.0 (or above)
  2. If this happens with Version 9.0 installed and you start the build from the command line using BuildConsole, this can be related to a plugin update problem mechanism in Visual Studio 2017 Update 3 itself and not related to IncrediBuild.
  3. Open Visual Studio and start any build from IncrediBuild menu. This causes Visual Studio to update the add-in correctly and every build that will be done from the CMD will now work
