Toolsets not added for x64 platform?

description

I work with Visual Studio 2015, but need to be able to create builds for earlier versions. So I installed Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2015 on my machine, and then installed the Daffodil extension.
As long as my platform is Win32, Visual Studio 2015 now recognizes the following platform toolsets:
v60, v70, v71, v80, Visual Studio 2010 (v100), and the 2012, 2013, and 2015 toolsets which were available to begin with.

However, for the x64 platform, the only new toolset which appears to have been added is v80. If I try to set it to v100, it comes up as Visual Studio 2010 (v100) (not installed).

What do I need to do so I can create an x64 v100 configuration?

The v100 toolset is part of the VS 2010 install. The 64 bit toolset is not installed by default, so you probably need to reinstall and make sure the x64 tools are selected for installation.

That was the problem, thanks!
