Question - IDE Can't export to zip and / or installer

hi,
i tried jumping back into GMS2 today. I installed GMS2, got the basic settings in and installed git for source control. i made a super basic circle as a player and everything worked out while testing. Then i wanted to try and export the game (just to see if it works) and from there on it went bad. i tried exporting to a Zip-file at first but i got an error back... then i tried exporting an installer to see if it was the zip function... no luck either =( i tried googling, watching videos and looked if i can find anything about it ... nothing =( it already took 9 hours until now and i still couldn't find a solution.

i was trying to export with VM since i don't have the special microsoft studio version for YYC installed.

i am using Game maker studio 2
IDE version 2.2.5.481
Current Runtime 2.2.5.378
on Windows 10 Pro
with 64 bit

and here is the error i am getting

For the details of why this build failed, please review the whole log above and also see your Compile Errors window.
by the way i am on a german machine so there are some things i german in the error...

any help is appreciated =)

EDIT:
I installed visual studio 2017 community edition and used YYC instead of VM and was able to Build the zip so i will stick with this one instead =)
