Add support for additional Windows SDKs #283
For what it is worth, I can build without it too. The problem I had with XP C++ support turned out to be an incomplete install of VS 2010. VS 2010 installed without error, but a big chunk of the C/C++ header tree was missing. I grafted the necessary bits on, applied SP1 and all the updates, and all has been golden.
Still, it’s good to be flexible.

I just built a Win10/VS2015 VM over the weekend, and I can build without this. Probably had something to do with installing the XP support for C++ option.

I've verified that XP support is checked. That's really just the headers and libs, though (well, mainly libs). On several fresh machines I've had to do this. In fact, over the weekend I'm working on another change to let us build votive using the latest VSSDK since it contains all the previous bits. I really don't want to put VS2010 on this machine just to build WiX (and VSSDK2010 requires VS2010; even if you work around the blocking message, all the binaries VSSDK2010 references are installed by VS2010).
