I want to set up to build Brave, but my system seems to be more current than what you are asking for.
I have MSVC 2017 Community (which is free) and I run python 3 instead of 2 as the default. I also run cygwin, which apparently isn’t recommended. The latter two can probably be solved by setting paths/scripts strategically and using another shell (power shell?)
My fear is that I’ll wind up in “DLL hell” if I try to backspace to MSVC 2015, and Windows doesn’t make it as easy to insulate a new user I might create from the global environment as Linux does (e.g. hidden registry/path settings, unclear support for multiple versions of the same library)
Can an experienced Brave developer recommend an approach? Something like docker for the dev environment?
