MSVC 2013: invalid language id when compiling version.rc.res


I wanted to compile SDL 2.0.4 using CMake with NMake Generator on
Visual Studio 2013.

I get the following error:

[ 50%] Building RC object CMakeFiles/SDL2.dir/src/main/windows/version.rc.res
fatal error RC1203: invalid language ID or language name specified.

In the past I’ve always been able to compile so I wonder what’s wrong
or if I have a problem in my toolchain.

Hi David,
Did you ever find a solution to this? I have the same error on the same file when compiling SDL 2.0.5 with NMake Makefiles using Microsoft Build Tools 2017.
