Windows [SOLVED] GMS2(v2.0.6.136)/VS 2017: Can't export to Windows

On your page http://gms.yoyogames.com/ReleaseNotes.html you write
GMS2(v2.0.6.136) would be compatible with Visual Studio 2017:

"Visual Studio 2017 can now be used for building Windows YYC, but you must now point to its VS_VARS.BAT file, not just the install folder"

I have GMS2(v2.0.6.136) installed and my runtime version is 2.0.6.93.

I have installed the community version of Visual Studio 2017. But I can't find a VS_VARS.BAT
in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017 directory (or subdirectories).

But I can find this instead:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat

So I tried to export to Windows setting this as "Platform Settings" for Windows.

But with C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat
or C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat
I get this message in the output window if I try to export:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe exited with non-zero status

So what could be wrong?

Check in your Runtime Feeds section of Preferences that your Runtime is set to 2.0.6.93 as it's possible that you haven't got the correct runtime which won't work with Visual Studio 2017

In the Runtime Feeds section of Preferences Version No. 2.0.6.93 has Running Status.

Can you post your entire compile log in a spoiler tag so I can have a look at it? I have my Visual Studio path set to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat and I have no issues building YYC or Exporting.

There were file residues that prevented the exe building.
After deleting C:\Users\q\AppData\Local\GameMakerStudio2\<dirs with my app names> and
C:\Users\q\AppData\Roaming\GameMakerStudio2\Cache
I can now export to Windows.
