WDK10, VS2015 - rc.exe path

Hi,

So I am trying to make a VS project for a driver (from scratch, and
then added the files), first time :)
The trouble is, while the compilation works, the path to RC.exe is
incorrect, and VS2015/MSBuild are using "C:\WDK10\Bin\x86\rc.exe" -
instead of "C:\WDK10\bin\10.0.18362.0\x86\rc.exe"

How do I fix this? Without fixing the VS config file's RCToolPath
variable directly.

    The question has to be asked: why in the world are you using such an old version of VS?

    The versions of the WDK are very closely tied to specific versions of VS and the SDK. They all need to match.

    Just get VS 2019 and the 1903 WDK and be happy!
