I have one in the platform SDK directory, but msilib.py finds the one in

E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\Tools\Bin

I now looked at the .NET MSI file, and found that CabArc.exe is only
installed if the feature "Win32 SDK Tools" is selected, which is a
subfeature of VC++.

As it is optional, I have now removed the assertion that VC++
provides it, and implemented your proposed change.
