Should be relatively easy, there is an environment variable
%VS71COMNTOOLS% (with different numbers for different versions), which
points at the Visual Studio install path, and the vsvars32.bat is
always relative from that.
The biggest issue we've had is that a simple execution of a batch file
has a strong tendancy to revert environment variables after it has
finished executing, which means the effect of vsvars32.bat is lost.
>From the command prompt its fine, but from another batch file you have
to do "call vsvars32.bat" - not just a direct execution. When spawning
via system (or similar), we had very little success. Our alternative
would probably be to parse the batch file - just looking for SET
lines, and to add them to the environment manually.
