WAF error when building LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'msvcprt.lib'

Hello,

I am new to the Lumberyard community and I am trying to build my first project. Everytime I try to create a new project, it fails to build. When I open the logs, this error is the first thing I see that could possibly be the issue:

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘msvcprt.lib’

I tried researching it and found that it was related to VS2017, but didn’t really find anything else useful. I would upload my log, but apparently I’m not allowed since I’m a new user.

Has anyone else come across this issue?
