@Crazy-Owl as long as you imported vars using vcvars.all (or using their VS Dev Console or however it's called which sets these same variables), everything should be compiling smoothly
without specifying any paths manually

You should never ever have to specify paths to VC++ stuff manually
At worst you'd have to run one of those vcvars bat files.
The real problem is simply dependencies that depend on C/C++ libraries and aren't setup correctly to build them under msvc, or they expect you to provide the library yourself
