>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: cordova-windows

> With Visual Studio 2017 (15.5) you can't build Win8.1 projects any more, see CB-13874.
> There are also problems with standalone MSBuild versions you can install.
> The MSBuildTools selection mechanism that is currently used is not prepared to handle
that in any way - it chooses one MSBuildTool version, then checks if it can build the projects
and proceeds or fails.
> There is the workaround that VSINSTALLDIR can be used to force a specific VS 2017+ installation
where it then tries to find a MSBuildTool installation in a specific folder, but this is also
very unreliable.
> This issue proposes a new ENV var that can be used to point to the exact MSBuildTool
instance that should be used. This way it will be possible to use the VS2015 build tools while
VS2017 is installed etc.
