Building RenderMan API Plugins/Executables

When compiling/building a plugin or executable on Windows the user must have a version of Microsoft Visual Studio (MVS) installed on their computer. Cutter uses a MVS file named "vcvars86_amd64.bat" when it writes a .bat that that it automatically runs to compile and build a plugin or executable. The full path to the vcvars86_amd64.bat must be specified in preferences. For example, in figure 1 the path has been specified as follows.

    C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0/VC/bin/x86_amd64/vcvarsx86_amd64.bat
