How to build blender on windows - standard and Mantaflow branch

On this tutorial we are going to follow the process needed to build Blender on windows, an easy guide for those that are not developers or experts but want to have the latest versions of Blender or that want to test some branches.

After we build the standard release version of Blender, we change to the Mantaflow branch and then we build the latest Mantaflow version (as of today of course)

Hope you like it!
