I did a little IRC debugging with Panos and Marco today. This appears to be a PATH setting issue. Shells started via start-shell-msvc*.bat work correctly but not ones started with start-shell.bat. Sounds like there's an SDK we're not detecting correctly when compiling with MSVC 2015 (WFM locally with 2017).
Blocks: 1365859
Though non-artifact builds work fine, so maybe this isn't tied to a specific MSVC version (I only do full builds with 2017) but rather to the way artifact builds are created.
Artifact builds don't run toolchain configure tests, so some paths are left out of PATH.

I'd argue the problem is with generating C/C++ headers during artifact builds.

For what it's worth, I'm a new owner of a Windows 10 machine and just started trying to follow "Building Firefox for Windows" on MDN [1]. I've got VS 2017 and MozillaBuild installed - and my local run of `mach build` errors out similarly [2]. 

Oh, and reading through previous comments - it seems significant to note that I started with start-shell.bat. I'll try one of the other scripts

Since I'm a WIndows dev newb, I don't have a whole lot of constructive feedback beyond this :/

Bug 1367735 - Do not attempt to generate or install headers or other compile related files during artifact builds.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/142966/#review146990

I would've thought we would just wrap the CompositorD3D11Shaders.h rule inside a COMPILE_ENVIRONMENT check, but this seems like a better way to go to avoid these issues in the future. I tried to double-check the diff to make sure nothing important was left out, and as far as I can tell it's all a bunch of headers or generated .cpp files needed for the compile-tier. So I think it should be good to go!

Just to follow up on my own issue - this seems to have gone away when I disabled Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10. So that seems like a red herring for this bug.
I'm going to nit here, but this should be done at the frontend level, not the backend level (because it means every single backend will need to implement the filtering)
