Don't know about SFML, by I couldn't use Qt built by 2015 with 2017.

Should be correct. But we're still waiting for someone to confirm.
A simple example builds and runs fine on my end with VS 2017 using SFML built with VS 2015.

so this is incorrect ?

The VS2015 libs should be compatible with VS2017. ...

Well, before we've all switched to VS 2017, we had a problem building and running our private SFML project half of us using VS 2015 and the other one 2017. I don't remember the issue though. I think I concluded the problem must have been caused by different compiler versions and just made everyone switch to VS 2017 :D

No one has reported the old issue since. Shall I investigate this further?

It's your time, so you decide. ;D

Whether VS 2015 builds are fully compatible with VS 2017 builds doesn't really matter as much, because we will provide VS 2017 at one point and it's still recommended to use builds of the same compiler. ;)

I won't spend any time on this then (delivering features is everything, right? Can't let myself procrastinate on this :D ). I hope you guys will be able to provide the official VS 2017 builds ASAP. Good luck!  ;D

I was able to successfully setup VS 2017 Community Edition with the VS2015 32bit libs for static linking.

I just built SFML master with Visual Studio 2017, only took me 5 minutes and works as expected.

I tried the VS2015 x64 builds and they appear to work, too.

Alternatively, I've built VS 2017 "Nightly Builds": https://www.nightlybuilds.ch/

I just upgraded all my project to vs2017 and had some really strange errors, and SFML was the cause of them.
I used the 2015 static linking lib, UCRT wasn't compatible : project building was ok but function like strtof() were sending non-sense error.
I finally built everything myself with CMake and everything is working again.
