Could not find a compatible version of MSBuild.
Check that you have a valid installation with the required workloads, or go to www.visualstudio.com/downloads to install a new one.

I got visual studio 2017 installed on another drive than c: msbuild 15 is also there and added to the path. so just an msbuild command works perfectly but i dont know whats missing. any ideas ?

How did you install in on another location? Did you do that manually, or used the official installer?
Do you have the latest version?

what do you mean how ? visual studio installer lets you choose. all the latest updates installed. all the .net framework versions installed even .net core each version. c++ also. every requirement is installed. it somehow can not find msbuild.
