I'm using the Visual Studio 2017 image, but build tools like CL.exe are still from vs2015 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin\).

    The line you point to clearly demonstrates that the build tools from vs2017 are available. The problem is likely in your build script not accessing them.
    I have no idea how the premake5 tool you're using works, but i'd guess your problem has something to do with this line.

    Thank you! I didn't noticed that setting will affect the exes used.
