I have examined and found this:
The automatic detection results in
$WINDOWS_SDK_HOME = /cygdrive/c/Programme/Microsoft SDKs/Windows/v6.0A
There configure is looking for the files

And indeed these files are not there. But I have found these files in
C:\Programme\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Bin
and in
C:\Programme\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.1\Bin

So which are the correct ones to use?

Kind regards
