In r1022667 I added two Microsoft-specific license files to the repo and used them during the packaging of a WinSDK. I propose to remove these files from the repo and to remove their use by the bld-winsdk script.
When building the WinSDK, the following command is executed:
devenv qpid-cpp.sln /buld "$vsTargetDebug" /project INSTALL
Part of INSTALL is to copy the Visual Studio redistributable runtime DLLs and manifest from the build system's <visual studio>\x86\redist directory to the WinSDK's \bin directory. It is a good practice to include the redistributable runtime files in the WinSDK as they are precisely the files required by the Qpid libraries in the WinSDK.
At this point, however, there is no need for the Microsoft Redistributable Runtime licenses anywhere in the WinSDK because the files in the WinSDK's \bin directory all came from the same build system. Only when the WinSDK is given to a third party do the Microsoft licenses become an issue.
