[New-bugs-announce] [issue35433] Correctly detect installed SDK versions

New submission from Jeremy Kloth <jeremy.kloth+python-tracker at gmail.com>:

In the process of eliminating compiler warnings on my buildbot, I needed to update VS2015 to the latest toolset (VS2015 Update 3).  This in turn now causes an error due about not having the required version of Windows SDK installed.

It seems that the detection logic for that uses a hard-coded list which may not be up-to-date (and possibly incorrect for some installs).  Referenced PR fixes this.
