VS 2017 Update 3 Preview 4 with fixed SDK

Desktop / Chromium - Bruce Dawson [chromium.org] - 14 July 2017 22:20 EDT

This change switches the VS 2017 package to use the 10.0.15063.468 SDK and the fourth preview of VS 2017 Update 3.

Packaging was done on a Windows Server 2016 VM, cleanly created for this purpose.

Compiler was packaged up by downloading the VS 2017 Update 3 Preview 4, from https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/preview/, and then running this command (executable name was different):

vs_professional.exe --add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.NativeDesktop--add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.VC.ATLMFC --includeRecommended--passive

Then the Windows 10.0.15063.468 SDK installer was used to install the Debuggers package.

The latest version of vswhere.exe doesn't show pre-release versions of
VS by default so win_toolchain/package_from_installed.py was locally patched to add the -prerelease flag to the vswhere.exe invocation.

Then the packaging script was run like this:

python depot_tools\win_toolchain\package_from_installed.py 2017 -w 10.0.15063.0

VS 2015 builds are still the default so this makes no immediate difference.
