Use MSBuild 14 by default

I just switched to os: Visual Studio 2015 but my project didn't build. I had to add MSBuild 14 to the path as it was failing on new C# 6 syntax. I feel like C# 6 should work out of the box on the Visual Studio 2015 images.

    Well, having MSBuild 14.0 in PATH on VS 2015 image makes sense. Will add an issue for that.

    Has this issue been resolved? I tried the VS 2015 RTM image in Environment, set the os: Visual Studio 2015, both using the Install Script to set the path as well as not. Still picking up the msbuild 12.0.31101.0

    It should be MSBuild 14.0 in PATH. Make sure VS.NET solution file has #Visual Studio 14 header.
