First Project Build Issues Windows

Hi,

I just started using cocos2d-x. And I’m having trouble to build my first project.

When I try to build in Windows with x64 target , VS 2022 I get:
Build started…

if I set Win32 I get:

Thanks!

Cocos2d-x doesn’t support x64 builds, but if you do need that, then try the fork of Cocos2d-x v4 that is in this repo, which does support it.
