VS2015 community edition is a huge download, but it works perfectly for me on Windows 10.

glfw2 target was removed from recent monkey versions. I believe 83 has it as last version.

A note from my own test:

If you don't want to download the full VS2013 for just GLFW3 target, try the 2013 Express version (for Windows "Desktop"),
it's still a 3GB big download, but cut those Web/WP8 thing that not frequently used and still work with monkey:

en_visual_studio_express_2013_for_windows_desktop_ with_update_5_x86_dvd_6815504.iso
SHA-1: 07A835250E7B02DDD5351F082DD66F5484B91A1F
(Note: you need to modify the msvc target template to use toolchain from v140 to v120 at MonkeyGame.vcxproj)

And the full VS 2013 Community is here if you need WP8 and Web (6.9GB):
Visual Studio Community 2013 with Update 5

BTW, it seems GLFW3 target can't work with VS2010/2012 directly(I'd want to figure it to save a few gigs)
It works, just remember to modify the toolchain version to v110 or your VC version, I'm not planning to use VS2015 soon as there're a fundamental change of runtimes that forcing Win7/8 users to install an update that you can't avoid.

For those who not planning to use XNA/WP8, just copy the MinGW from the Monkey Free version and modify the bin/config.winnt.txt, most thing should work like usual.
