Hi Benoît, thank you for the quick reply. Please see my reply below.

I've added it on the Slave side and created the marshalling piece on the 
Master side in steps/slave.py. But, it seems, I am missing some kind of 
registration as I get the following error when restarting the master:

  144, in loadConfig
             exec f in localDict
           File "/opt/buildbot/master/master.cfg", line 272, in <module>
         exceptions.NameError: name 'ReadRegistry' is not defined

I am trying to call the step this way:


This seems to be an awkward and indirect way of solving the issue. The 
master needs not care how Visual Studio is installed on the Slave. I 
only need to read the registry on the Slave side, then capture the 
environment and then invoke MsBuild.

What am I missing?
