Q.  Visual Studio: How can I run nmake?

A.  Before you can run nmake you need to setup some environment variables.
For me that was:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"
But rc.exe was missing So I copied it from the SDK to the above folder.
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin" copy /v /b "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.17134.0\x86\rc.exe" . copy /v /b "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.17134.0\x86\rcdll.dll" .
(I tried creating a symlink with mklink but it wasn't runable) Then I was able to run
nmake -f Makefile.win32
(Or whatever the Makefile is called)
