Aspose.Words for C++ Library Error: Only ‘v140’, ‘v141’ and ‘v142’ toolsets are supported | Aspose.Words.Cpp 20.2.0 on Windows 7

If I use Visual Studio 2017 and set the build target to v141_xp, which is required for Windows 7 compatibility, I get the message “Aspose.Words for C++ Library error: Only ‘v140’, ‘v141’ and ‘v142’ toolsets are supported.”

The listed compatible toolsets won’t work on Windows 7.

Regarding WORDSCPP-941, we have completed the work on your issue and concluded to close this issue with “Not a Bug” status. Please see the following analysis details:

Please note that v141_xp toolset is required only for Windows XP target platform.

Your project using Aspose.Words for C++ would not build when using v141_xp, but specifying v141_xp is also not required when working on Windows 7. So, please do not use v141_xp when working on Windows 7.

Also, please note that Aspose.Words for C++ API does no longer support outdated Windows XP. Hope, this helps.
