Thanks. Checking it out now, I found it, and it was set to


where WindowsSdkDir is an environment variable that isn't defined by the 
SDK installation (so isn't present with normal start of Visual Studio), 
but is set by the common environment fix batch file.

However, adding the raw SDK include path to that option did not work, 
while running Visual Studio Shell from the command line (with the 
environment variables set properly) does work.
