You can already find all this information in the output/intermediate folder, e.g. the dep/lnkdep files are from monitoring compiler and linker, respectively.

The logs are not as verbose as the ones generated by msbuild, but that makes them easier to digest.

I just released a bug fix version 0.50.1 with a few enhancements:

- fixes some integration issues with VS 2019 16.2
- mago: improve function call in watch window
- better version highlighting for files not in project

Your problems are easy to resolve.
BuildTools has some weird paths... but you're running VS; why are you
using the separate build tools distribution when you have VS
installed? This is thoroughly non-standard and weird. Just install the
proper C++ tools?
The path issue that lead to optlink rather than MS link should be
trivial to resolve, then you will not have linking problems.

yep, I fixed it already, its ok now
- install internal build tools instead separate package.
- reset VD settings (such issue was fixed by Schuetze).
- fix PATH vars.
