Description

The mozregression-site is currently suggesting to launch start-l10n.bat (respectively start-shell-l10n.bat in MozBuild 1.9) in order to use mozregression.

But if the users chooses to bisect revisions after bisecting inbound, the following build-error is happening:

===

configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

It might be good to advice to use start-shell-msvc*.bat and check if the Mozbuild-instance is able to compile at all when launching a bisection.
