UE4 compile error MSB3075

Howdy!
I have been successfully compiling the Engine on Linux without any issues. However on Windows 10 I get the following error

I am using Micorsoft Visual Studio Community 2017 version 15.9.16 to load the UE4.sln and compile the Engine (version is 4.12. I have to use it for experimental purpose). How can I rectify this? Thanks!

UT4 only works with VS 2015. I got it compiled with VS2017 but was a lot of hassle.

That was it, thanks!
