      Description

        On Windows the failure_handler is configured to run "cdb" to generate native stack traces and core dumps. This tool isn't available by default in Windows, but is an optional part of the Windows SDK. To make it more accessible, it would be convenient if we could incorporate it in the devkit, which is already constructed as a subset of Visual Studio and the Windows SDK.

        In addition to adding the files to the devkit, we also need to export the internal location through a suitable variable (PATH?) in devkit.info, and then make sure to put that directory in the PATH when running tests through make.
