Build Problems on Windows 10

Hi guys,

i have a problem building graal on Windows 10.

To build it I need Visual C++ compiler and Visual Studio 10

While installing Visual Studio 10 is not a problem (you eventually need to
uninstall Windows Redistribution Package 10) but installing the compiler is

The installer doesnt detect .net Framework 4.6 as a valid .net 4.0
installation and outputs an error.

When I try to install the 4.0 Package the installer tells me "your current
.net Version is better than the one you trying to install". On Windows 10
you cant uninstall .net 4.6, disabling it helps neither.

I tried to set up VS100COMNTOOLS as :
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\Tools

but that doesnt work since the compiler is still missing.

Would it be possible to update the dependencies of graal?

Also on your instructions wiki page a quick "mx tools is no standalone link
to bitbucket" would be really helpful.

Beside that mx is a really great tool but stops downloading completely when
having other downloads concurrent and wont start again.

Thanks in advance
