Old Windows Compilers support

Dear Tango-Controls community,

As you may know, we are currently using appveyor to automatically build the C++ Tango library on Windows.
With appveyor, it seems it is impossible to build for Visual Studio 2017 and 2015 and at the same time to build with old Windows compilers (MSVC9, MSV10, MSVC12) on the same branch.

What we propose is to build cppTango for Visual Studio 2017 and 2015 32 bits and 64 bits on tango-9-lts branch and to create a dedicated branch for the older compilers if they are still needed.

The question is, does anyone still needs to compile tango 9 LTS with MSVC9, MSVC10 or MSVC12?

Thanks for your input.

I Reynald,

I've just read your post and wanted to make you know that we are still using those old compilers at Thales (MSVC9 too sadly). Indeed, new versions appear faster than the acceptance of the previous version by our IT.

Thank you Guillaume for your feedback.
Do you need both x64-MSVC9-x64 and win32-MSVC9?

Hello Reynald,

We only use 32bits.

Thank you for asking.
