MSVC path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503
DIA SDK path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\DIA SDK

dia_sdk_dir of windows.configure tries finding invalid path.
I changed this in bug 1318143:

It worked with my local VC2017 Express installation. I'm travelling and don't have access to my Windows machine currently, so I don't know why this isn't working for you.

Even if I test on VC2017 community edition, VC directory (vc_path) is <Program Files>\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.11.25503\bin.  Also, 2017 express is no longer available.
Sorry, I misspoke, I have VC 2017 Community installed. My compilers are also under `C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.10.25017\bin`, and the DIA SDK is under `C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\DIA SDK`.
OK, so after actually trying to dump symbols with my VC2017 build, I find that things are in fact broken here locally:

We should turn that configure check into an error if the crashreporter is enabled, (and suggest --disable-crashreporter as a workaround). Given that the community editions of VC contain the DIA SDK, there's no compelling reason to support building without it, and it's very easy to accidentally wind up in this situation.

This is good, but I think you should also add a check in `include_path` to error if this path is missing, like we do for the other directories there. There's no reason for us to silently ignore this anymore.
