In something is told about setenv, however, recent Windows versions do not have a setenv command and neither has the Visual Studio command prompt (I'm using Visual Studio 2015 on Windows 10 and/or Windows Server 2012 or 2016) has it.
Q1: Is this a typo? Does Windows really have a setenv command? I'm only aware of a set command (to set environment variable). Where is setenv on a (default) Windows system?

In addition to previous question:
Q2: What kind of build on Windows is preferred? The on in winbuild or the project/solution files under the projects\Windows directory?

Background: my goal is to figure out whether I can address the issues as reported on
Currently, I'm using an own variant from the winbuild stuff (curl 7.57, with openSSL 1.1.0g, latest zlib and libssh2 libraries).
