Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.79 Safari/537.36 Edge/14.14393




Expected results:

Building Firefox will fail if the latest version of Windows SDK installed doesn't have winrt headers in the Include directory, which is an optional component. Because multiple versions of SDK can be installed side by side, it would be better if the error message can print out which SDK version it checks, so that users only need to reinstall that specific version of SDK.
