on the libreoffice-4-1 and master branches you can fix this with the
configure switch --with-windows-sdk=7.0A ... but that does not work on
libreoffice-4-0 branch; there is a --with-windows-sdk-home switch.... oh
you're already using that one.

sorry, no idea why that doesn't work - MSVC2012 support was still
experimental in those days anyway.
