Goal:I intend to install ROS2 Dashing on Windows. I am building from source following the instructions in https://index.ros.org/doc/ros2/Instal....

Issue: When running colcon build --merge-install from the Visual Studio Developer Command Prompt each package starts to be built. However, it fails on the same error:

--- stderr: <package>
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:2 (project):
  Generator

    Visual Studio 16 2019

  could not find any instance of Visual Studio.

I have added an AMENT_IGNORE file to each package to see if the problem is with an individual package, but the error is occuring in every package.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
