Unable to build Ruby with Visual Studio 2015 RC
I installed the latest Visual Studio, and then tried to build Ruby 2.2.2 on Windows 7. But, I'm having trouble right away. This is an RC candidate (so I guess that's why the CLI shows Visual Studio 14).

This issue is due to the runtime name change.
Since the Visual Studio 2014, the runtime is vcruntime140.dll.
The other huddle is FILE structure Encapsulation:
win32/win32.c should be rewritten in order to be built with Visual Studio 2014 or later.

- Backport changed from 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN to 2.0.0: WONTFIX, 2.1: WONTFIX, 2.2: WONTFIX, 2.3: WONTFIX
I also write about this on Microsoft Connect.
You may understand the situation by seeing https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/884.
- Ruby 2.3 or prior won't fix this.
- Ruby 2.4 or later may introduce with fundamental architectural change.
