Can't specify "Win32" platform for MSBuilds

Currently the choices in the "platform" combobox are specific to .NET projects (Any CPU/x86/x64) and it's impossible to build C++ projects for Win32 platform -- while building it for x64 works just fine. Could the choice of "Win32" or the ability to enter additional platforms please be added?

    You can set configuration environment variable to Win32 - that should to the trick.

    Thanks for your reply but I'm not sure to understand it. Should I stop specifying the platform in the build part of the settings and use two different "build matrix groups" in the environment page?

    Also, do you mean platform by chance or should it really be configuration?

    Thanks again!

    Oh, right, I meant platform - when you specify it on UI it just sets environment variable with the same name. Yes, you can use build matrix groups on environment page.
