That actually brings up a good point. We have build machines with 
multiple versions of MSVC.

You can check what is installed by the vs-comntools, and use that 
variable as a path to invoke the vsvars32.bat of the version you want. 

That might be worth a sentence in the instructions as multiple MSVC's is 
a useful configuration for a build machine. (We also have multiple 
MinGW's, and specific GCC versions are part of some builds).

A build machine then could have multiple versions of MSVC installed to 
allow testing a move from 2010 to 2012, and to 2013.
